High-throughput estimation of crop traits: A review of ground and aerial phenotyping platforms uri icon

abstract

  • Crop yields need to be improved in a sustainable manner to meet the expected worldwide increase in population over the coming decades as well as the effects of anticipated climate change. Recently, genomics-assisted breeding has become a popular approach to food security; in this regard, the crop breeding community must better link the relationships between the phenotype and the genotype. While high-throughput genotyping is feasible at a low cost, high-throughput crop phenotyping methods and data analytical capacities need to be improved.
