Abstract

Designing and implementing an affordable High-Throughput Phenotyping Platform (HTPP) for monitoring crops’ features in different stages of their growth can provide valuable information for crop-breeders to study possible correlation between genotypes and phenotypes. Conducting automatic field measurements can improve crop productions. In this research, we have focused on development of a mechatronic system, hardware and software, for a mobile field-based HTPP for autonomous crop monitoring for wheat field. The system can measure canopy’s height, temperature, vegetation indices and is able to take high quality photos of crops. The system includes developed software for data and image acquisition. The main contribution of this study is autonomous, reliable, and fast data collection for wheat and similar crops.
