Research Infrastructure

Shoot Stress Diagnostic System

Description The aim of the infrastructure is to provide a platform for quantitative monitoring of plant growth and stress responses under controlled environmental conditions. The setup is located in a greenhouse environment, and consists of a computer controlled watering- and RGB imaging station. Chlorophyll fluorescence-, as well as thermal imaging can also be performed. The plants are moved by a semi-robotic system to the watering- and imaging station. The system is dedicated to medium sized plants, such as wheat and barley, and provides for each individual plants the growth curves of plant height and leaf area/green biomass, average values of leaf temperature and variable fluorescence parameters (quantum yield of Photosystem II), as well as water profiles. The system is optimized for monitoring changes in plant growth and physiological parameters under drought stress.
