Categories of phenotyping infrastructure

EMPHASIS at providing phenotyping infrastructure for the improvement of plant performance under a changing climate which requires the use of different categories of infrastructure, which can and should be combined together with a coordinated infrastructure for storing and analyzing data.

The platform categories include:

Controlled conditions:
Phenotyping platforms in (semi-)controlled conditions for high resolution and high throughput phenomics

Intensive field:
Smart/ Intensive field experimental sites for high throughput phenomics

Lean field:
Translational, coordinated network of field experiments with lean, efficient phenotyping close to practical breeding setups

Modelling platforms for testing existing or virtual combinations of alleles in a variety of climatic scenarios and management practices
