Advances in Field-Based High-throughput Phenotyping and Data Management:
Grains and Specialty Crops
This event was in Spokane, Washington, in November 2015
- Identifying the current status, gaps, and future research needs for field-based high throughput phenotyping to accelerate breeding efforts in grain and specialty crops.
- Taking an integrated effort to develop and share resources (technologies-platforms and sensors, protocols, data processing algorithms, data management procedures) for high-throughput phenotyping.
- Develop a roadmap to derive field-phenomics future directions.
- Develop a multi-state project as a tool for resource and knowledge sharing through continuing collaboration.
- Develop multidisciplinary teams to develop integrated projects.
- Plant Breeding, Physiology, and Phenotyping
- Sensors and Automation in Field Phenomics
- Data Management Issues
- Education & Private-Public Collaborations
