Join this free 60-minute online webinar to learn about plant imaging and some of the advantages it offers for trait quantification and remote sensing in crops.

WHO?

Growers, producers, plant breeders, innovative SMEs, academics and large ag companies interested in digital plant phenotyping are invited to participate in a free 60-minute online webinar.

WHAT?

CHAP’s Digital Phenotyping Laboratory is based with our partner, Rothamsted Research.

Gain an insight into this state-of-the-art facility and the specialist expertise on offer — available for both grant funded and commercially funded projects.

SPEAKERS

Learn from our resident phenotyping expert, Dr Tom Ashfield, as he showcases the lab’s high-tech equipment and explains how digital phenotyping can be used to:

  • Evaluate new chemistries or bio-control agents for pests, pathogens or weed control
  • Screen germplasm for novel disease resistance traits
  • Determine spectral signatures’ for specific diseases for use in remote sensing applications

Hear real-life examples of the benefits of imaging from CHAP’s project partners Fotenix and the Small Robot Company who have made the most of the lab’s expertise.

There will also be an explanation of the hi-tech kit supporting this scientific excellence from a leading equipment provider followed by an opportunity to ask all the sessions’ speakers a question in the Q&A session.
