Landscaped Technologies to Automate Phenotyping

Our client used greenhouse and field trials to measure and compare plant characteristics and performance. Their researchers manually sampled plant material throughout the season – which represented a significant investment in labor and analysis.

When our client wanted to improve operational and technical efficiencies, and we landscaped available technologies and recommended those that would enable our clients to automate their phenotyping.

Starting from our client’s capabilities and technical needs, we 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 that would inform and inspire their internal product development. This work codified market-ready technologies and those under development. We collaborated with commercial suppliers, researchers, and industry observers to identify components critical to the project’s success and potential technology suppliers and developers. Our client used our insights to support its decision to automate its existing phenotyping activities.
