A Successful Cooperation against Plant Diseases
Data Fusion in Plant Phenotyping for Cercospora Detection in Sugarbeets
The project partners Clausthal University of Technology, KWS SAAT SE & Co. KGaA, MG Optical Solutions GmbH and InfraTec GmbH Infrarotsensorik und Messtechnik developed an innovative sensor system, which shall detect a Cercospora infection by laser induced IR spectroscopy. The plant leaves are irradiated by a quantum cascade laser at wavelengths of typical absorption bands of Cercospora related molecules whereon the resulting surface temperature changes are detected by a radiometrically calibrated thermal camera VarioCAM® HD head by InfraTec.
So, the project „DataPlant“ demonstrated various sensor technologies which are potentially suited for an automated detection of plant diseases and could provide data for digital system solutions in plant production and breeding in future.
