Abstract:

Remote sensing and spectral reflectance measurements of plants has long been used to assess the growth and nutrient status of plants in a noninvasive manner. With improved imaging and computer technologies, these approaches can now be used at high-throughput for more extensive physiological and genetic studies. Here, we present an example of how high-throughput imaging can be used to study the growth of plants exposed to different nutrient levels. In addition, the color of the leaves can be used to estimate leaf chlorophyll and nitrogen status of the plant.
