High-throughput crop phenotyping in vegetable crops

T Ilakiya, E Parameswari, V Davamani, Dumpala Swetha and E Prakash
In the era of climate change with increasing global populace, there is a requisite for developing high yielding climate resilient varieties in a shorter span. Integrating the modern techniques of high-throughput phenomics with the gains of genomics would lead to increase in the efficiency of breeding techniques for the rapid development of such varieties. The development of plant phenomics facilities in vegetable breeding have been developing in recent years. High-throughput plant phenotyping involves the use of various imaging techniques, where the images are collected and are then analyzed in some specialized software's. Apart from getting the phenotype traits of the plant these techniques are used to analyze different biotic and abiotic stress traits as well as the nutrient status of vegetable crops. The high-throughput plant phenotyping platforms would help the vegetable breeder in saving their time, as the conventional phenotyping is a time-consuming process. HTTPs delivers more reliable and accurate results. It would also help to find more pertinent solutions for the serious issues that limits the vegetable crop production.
