RhizoVision Crown: An Integrated Hardware and Software Platform for Root Crown Phenotyping

Figure 1

The experimental design of this study to design and validate the RhizoVision Crown platform for root crown phenotyping included constructing a hardware platform, developing a software for imaging, and developing a software for image analysis. The image analysis was validated for root measurements using simulated monocot and dicot images. The combined platform was validated for accuracy of physical measurements by imaging copper wires of known diameter. Finally, root crown phenotyping was tested using a soybean experiment in Missouri and a wheat experiment in Oklahoma.
