Utilising optical sensing, high-throughput phenotyping of many scales of plant leaf morphological, physiological, and biochemical properties

Michael Popp

Advancements in agricultural research have increasingly relied on technological innovations to boost crop productivity and sustainability. One such breakthrough is the application of optical sensing technology for high-throughput phenotyping of plant leaf properties. This article explores the revolutionary impact of optical sensing in the field of plant research, enabling the rapid assessment of various c, physiological, and biochemical attributes at different scales. From individual leaves to entire plant populations, the integration of optical sensors has ushered in a new era of precision agriculture, accelerating the breeding and selection of superior crop varieties and enhancing our understanding of plant-environment interactions.
