High Throughput Phenotyping in Plant Breeding
Date of this Version
Plant and Soil Sciences eLibrary (PASSeL) Lesson
An introduction to plant breeding and high throughput phenotyping. This lesson outlines the steps and goals of the plant breeding process and identifies areas that can be improved with high throughput phenotyping methods. It also covers the steps necessary to collect and process UAV-based high throughput phenotyping data to make reliable plant breeding decisions.
- Explain plant breeding and the goals of the plant breeding process.
- Compare and contrast different High Throughput Phenotyping (HTP) methods and their potential to improve the plant breeding process.
- Outline the steps necessary to collect data using Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV)-based HTP methods: pre-flight mission planning, pre-flight set up, and flight.
- Summarize the general process of storing, processing, and extracting information from raw UAV data and how it can be used to make reliable plant breeding decisions.
- Identify the limitations to HTP and the status of HTP in current breeding programs.
