Matthew Reynolds and Zhonghu He from CIMMYT co-authored a paper, A rapid monitoring of NDVI across the wheat growth cycle for grain yield prediction using a multi-spectral unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) platform, investigating the potential of using UAV-based NDVI measurement in the phenotyping of wheat varieties in the breeding program.
Awais Rasheed and Zhonghu He from CIMMYT co-authored a research paper on the assessment of plant height measurement using unmanned aerial vehicles.
Recent innovations in digital imagery and sensors save money and time in the collection of data related to phenotyping. These technologies, known as high-throughput phenotyping platforms, replace lengthy paper-based visual observations of crop trials.
