Field Phenotyping of Vegetable Crops under Heat and Flooding Stress
Presenting author: Roland Schafleitner, World Vegetable Center
Session: Plant Phenotypes
Location: Pacific D
Time: 9:15 AM
Duration: 18 minutes
Session type: Workshop
Link: PAG 2022
About: Dr. Roland Schafleitner and his team used 3D & Multispec in the field to measure the growth and health of vegetables under high heat and flooding stress. This experiment can only be accomplished during the hot and wet summer also known as “Typhoon Season”.
Evaluating plants during this experiment without being stuck in the mud was impossible, let alone measuring plant biomass non-destructively. In this talk Roland explains how they managed to measure the plants and what results they got.
