Time Lapse Photography for High-Throughput Phenotyping of Corn

Authors: , , , ,


Comprehensive assessment of plant performance requires taking various measurements in the field throughout the growing season. These measurements are time consuming. To increase the sampling frequency of trait assessment, a time-lapse photography system was developed. The cameras take images at user-specified intervals (e.g., every 15 minutes) throughout the growing season, which allows us to measure various plant traits at a high frequency with minimal daily labor.
