Robopec, in partnership with Meca3d designs on behalf of INRA or Arvalis different systems for phenotyping.

Our different phenotyping solutions:

What is it ?

Phenotyping consists of observing plants and the characters they express (leaf color, stem thickness, etc.). Tools such as Phenomobile can be used to measure plants using different sensors.

What for ?

To improve cereal performance, breeders and agronomists seek to identify genes involved in certain traits of interest such as resistance to disease or drought resistance.

With a large number of observations, it is then possible to associate an observed trait with genes.
