DST-Early Career Research Award- Derivation of algorithms for automated and accelerated phenotyping using high throughput phenotyping platform-Leasy scan, to understand and enhance environmental adaptations in sorghum

Leasy scan-high throughput phenotyping for canopy size and structure components: derivation of algorithms for Sorghum plays an important role in ensuring food and fodder security for millions of rural families in the semi-arid tropics. Breeding for improved varieties for water-limited environments has been slow, especially in developing countries, mostly because of the highly unpredictable environments … Continue reading DST-Early Career Research Award- Derivation of algorithms for automated and accelerated phenotyping using high throughput phenotyping platform-Leasy scan, to understand and enhance environmental adaptations in sorghum

INRA Francois

Phenotyping on common set of germplasm using phenotyping platforms that have complementary capacities (PhenoArch and Phenodyn at INRA, LeasyScan and LysiField at ICRISAT). This is a first but important step in linking up phenotyping platform, aiming at generating rich and diverse datasets with well-documented meta-data.

The Hidden Effect of Temperature

Much of the current research on climate change focuses on the effect of high temperature on the reproductive biology (e.g. seed setting, pollen viability). Considerably less research is conducted targeting the effects of higher temperature on increasing the evaporative demand around the crop canopy. High evaporative demand depletes the plant’s water reserve faster and the … Continue reading The Hidden Effect of Temperature

Sense and Sensibility

The word of the moment in modern breeding programmes is “high-throughput phenotyping”. We need to measure well, measure with precision, and measure fast, and measure in bulk. But measure what? The LeasyScan platform has been developed to answer essential research questions concerning plant adaptation to drought and turn answers into breeding solutions. LeasyScan is here … Continue reading Sense and Sensibility
