Advanced Solutions to Overcome Plant Phenotyping Challenges

Agricultural researchers draw from a sophisticated toolbox of technologies to address countless challenges facing farmers and growers around the world. While many of us are familiar with the tools used to improve crops and animals, such as breeding and gene editing, we often miss one of the most difficult pieces of the innovation process – watching to see what effect it will deliver.

On January 27 join us at NCBiotech to hear how advanced tools, such as robots, artificial intelligence, cameras, and satellites, are helping to overcome the enormous task of watching plants grow from the lab to the field. RSVP
