The technical facility for phenotyping in semi-controlled condition

In brief

"The characterization of the morphological and physiological responses of the plants studied today remains a barrier to the selection of varieties adapted to unfavorable water conditions. The Heliaphen phenotyping platform was developed to meet this challenge. It allows the implementation of large-scale automated experiments, where each plant is conditioned in a unique and precise manner. Entirely designed for sunflowers, this platform is used to study the characteristics of sunflowers from seedling germination to full seed maturity at the end of the plant's development. »
