Dynamic monitoring of canopy structure by time serial photography of early stage growth of wheat

Early vigour is an important physiological trait to improve establishment, water-use efficiency and grain yield for wheat. Phenotyping large numbers of genotypes is challenging due to the fast growth and development of wheat seedlings. Several …

Quantitative evaluation of influence of PROSTRATE GROWTH 1 gene on rice canopy structure based on three-dimensional structure model

The discovery and separation of the PROSTRATE GROWTH 1 gene has significantly contributed to reveal the molecular mechanism of rice evolution and has aided the study of the molecular basis of rice plant architecture. However, the influence of the …

Assessment of the effects of leaf angle combinations on potential photosynthesis capacity of rice with 3-D models using high performance computing

Improving plant structure is pivotal for increasing the potential yield of crops. The aim of this paper was to evaluate the influence of leaf angle and leaf area index (LAI) on light interception efficiency and capacity of biomass production of rice …

Three-dimensional digitization in situ of rice canopies and virtual stratified-clipping method.

Objective: The aim of this paper was to explore a technology which can accurately reflect the three-dimensional (3D) canopy architecture of rice plants. Method: The 3D digitizing technology was used to measure the rice plant structure in situ at the …
