Drought stress imposition protocol for rice and wheat using a plant phenomic platform. (a) Minilysimeter with an irrigation pipe. (b) Pots of 10 l capacity and (c) 20 l capacity were kept on lysimeters with the automated irrigation facility. (d) Gradual moisture stress (dry-down) was imposed with a reduction of 5% of FC per day to reach 45% FC which was then elevated to 100% FC after 10 days. (e) Bar graph indicating evapotranspiration data of IR64, Apo, and the wheat cultivar Weebill for one day. (f) The graph is indicating real-time water transpired and added per day.
