The world’s first Field Scanalyzer is up and running at Rothamsted Research A unique facility for field phenotyping has been officially launched at Rothamsted Research The Field Scanalyzer comprises of a gantry that supports a motorised measuring platform with multiple sensors. Crops within a 10m x 110m area can be monitored throughout the season with a high degree of resolution and reproducibility. The facility is fully automated and can operate 24 hours per day throughout the year. On board illumination facilitates the data collection and sensors include multi-wavelength imaging systems, an imaging sensor to measure chlorophyll fluorescence decay kinetics and a laser system for 3D visualisation and crop height determination. Together these sensors will enable detailed monitoring of crop physiology, plant architecture, crop health and plant function, with unparalleled accuracy, and will contribute to our food security and sustainability programmes.
