Automated precision phenotyping greenhouse
Automated sensor technology for precision plant research applications
Advanced technology for precision plant research
The Automated Precision Phenotyping Greenhouse utilizes advanced sensors, robotics and controlled environment technologies to precisely monitor and supplement agricultural crops in health, yield, nutrition, and stress tolerance in a wide range of environmental conditions.
This complex of five adjacent greenhouses aims to enhance research and industry understanding of crops and their unique growth patterns. The technologies developed here will serve the enhancement of plant traits and the evolution of our food systems to meet growing demands.
