Soil-Grown Root Phenotyping

Our phenotyping technology is non-disruptive and, therefore, applicable in the field. 

We rapidly extract unique data essential for breeding programs, detecting soil-borne diseases, and testing the efficiency of fertilizers and biostimulants. 

About

80% of all plant problems start with soil and roots. 

PhenoRoot provides research and diagnosis services using soil-grown plants under different and controlled growing conditions. 

The root-soil interaction is crucial for reliable research and testing. 


Common phenotyping systems rely on plants grown in artificial media such as agar or transparent gels to facilitate imaging. Concluding from artificial media is questionable since the plants under test aren't developed in their natural environment. Many important problems of interest involve direct interaction with soil, such as plant microbiome, uptake tests of fertilizers, salinity, and drought resistance are not suitable for plant growth in artificial media. The root-soil interaction is crucial for reliable research and testing. 

PhenoRoot has developed unique capabilities for accurately diagnosing the root system of plants growing in different soil types.

 

Besides, the company diagnoses the upper plant parts according to customer requirements.

The goal of Phenoroot is to create the largest root phenotyped collection ever constructed. Promoting data-driven, logical decision-making in the agricultural sector. The purpose of Phenoroot is to establish an industry standard for root-related traits to lessen the effects of stress-related yield loss.

 

Leading companies and universities already use Phenoroot technology to test new fertilizers, scan new herbicide molecules, and breed programs for yield stability and carbon sequestration.
