After the given plant phenotype is reasonably understood and the potential economic value of the phenotype assessed in silico, ultimately, the tools enabling massive screening of such phenotype is inevitable to assist the breeding programs. To encounter the typical breeding population size and screen for the phenotype relevant for crop production improvement in target agro-eco-systems accurately and precisely we have developed relevant high-throughput phenotyping pipelines.

Why is it important?

Phenotyping or measuring key traits of crops such as drought tolerance is crucial in breeding and genetics to speed up the development of improved varieties. At ICRISAT, the lysimetric approach is being successfully used for phenotyping, particularly for plant responses to water stress related to drought and climate change adaptation.
