In order to propose a varied phenotyping offer, the three devices HeliaPhen, AgroPhen and TPMP have joined forces to create the joint PhenoToul platform.

PhenoToul is a plant phenotyping infrastructure dedicated to research at regional, national and European level. It brings together a collective of researchers, engineers and research technicians with skills in agronomy, genetics and image processing.

This infrastructure is the result of projects co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), the Ministry of Higher Education and Research, the Occitanie Region, Sicoval and INRAE. It must meet the current challenges of agro-ecology and tomorrow's cropping systems, while taking climate change into account.

To do this, it proposes a multi-scale approach via 3 devices that are part of the Phenome-Emphasis network:

Création pwp ang
  • AgroPhen : an open-field phenotyping to analyse plants in stands under different climatic conditions and crop management (sowing date and density, fertilisation, irrigation, phytosanitary protection).
  • TPMP : a fully controlled laboratory phenotyping to measure the impact of changing environmental conditions on plant performance and their interactions with microbes.
  • HeliaPhen : a semi-controlled phenotyping to study the individual response of plants to drought.

These various non-destructive analyses are carried out using automated phenotyping tools: robot, drone and phenomenal.

PhenoToul, by creating a centre of competence in image processing (LiDAR, multispectral acquisition) and by developing data processing and management chains, offers its services to the entire public and private scientific community.
