OPTIMA Project will also be mentioned
“Photonics for measuring plant performance and disease detection”, a presentation by Dr. Gerrit Polder of Wageningen University & Research in 2 upcoming photonics workshops on AgriFood:
1) September 14th, 2021: https://virtual-mission-photonics-france-netherlands.b2match.io/
2) October 04-07, 2021: https://photonics-days-berlin-brandenburg-2021.b2match.io/
Short description: Photonic technology enabled products are frequently used in the agri-food sector to optimize production, to safeguard harvests and to use water, energy and pesticides even more efficiently. The use of imaging and spectroscopy in agriculture and horticulture is a development that has been intensively researched in recent years. This presentation will give an overview of recent developments in which Wageningen University & Research is involved, including photonic technology used in the newly setup Netherlands Plant Eco-phenotyping Centre NPEC.
The use of this technology within OPTIMA project will also be highlighted.
