Whole plant phenotyping with the Plantarray
29 June 2020
Plant-Ditech, the Israeli Company of Research Excellence, will deliver the Plantarray system in the NPEC greenhouse. Plantarray is a high-throughput, gravimetric and multi-sensors-based screening platform. It measures continuously and simultaneously, multiple shoot and root physiological traits, as well as soil and atmosphere conditions for each plant in the greenhouse. Plantarray increases the ease with which plant stress can be determined during experiments.
By early 2021 the NPEC Greenhouse will be ready for large scale research and experiments!
