2D Phenotyping: methodologies & tool

Starting from the back-up activity up to the breeding, Landlab has gained a great deal of knowledge and developed a reliable “2D plants’ imaging acquisition”

Methodol in order to obtain the plants’ Living Ground Cover; then the pictures are analyzed using a specific software; The virtual data is then cross-checked with the direct biometric measurement of the biomass: the high correlation among the “virtual vs real” biomass confirms the extreme reliability of the LANDLAB 2D Phenotyping system.

The pixels are classified based on the colour: e.g. Green is healthy

The LGC in the upper pic is 9.83% while it is 62.30% in the lower one.

TOOLS for 2D Phenotyping

Box for turfgrass picture
The 2D LED Box developed specifically for the evaluation of the LGC (Living Ground Cover) of the lawn/turf canopies Box for turfgrass picture

Capturing box
The Box developed for capturing the images of several types of pots with model plants and estimating the virtual biomass

LED lighted box
LED lighted box used for in field image analysis. The box is normally places over the plots with the selected model crops and used both in the Landlab station or on crops growing by local farmers. Several boxes with different sizes are used on the basis of the model specie
