We identified our client’s existing capabilities and technical needs and developed a technology landscape within plant sampling and in-field diagnostics to complement these needs. The landscape was divided into commercial-ready in-field robotics and advanced plant diagnostic R&D.
Using these insights, we expanded our client’s understanding of available technology to inform and inspire internal product development. This work codified the market-ready technologies and those that were under development. We collaborated with commercial suppliers, researchers, and industry observers to identify those components that were critical to the project’s success and potential technology suppliers and developers best aligned to meet the client’s needs. Our client used our insights to support its decision to automate its existing phenotyping activities.
