Mission Statement

Enlarged view: Composition

Unter the term PhenoFly, we develop low-altitude / high resolution sensing systems and analysis procedures for spectral, thermal and 3D data to understand how plants interact with their environment. In particular, we focus on plant traits important for field-phenotyping and precision agriculture applications

Our vision is to bring (high-throughput) phenotyping approaches from large facilities to the landscape. We aim to bridge the gap between different observational scales by integrating data from proximal ground measurement and the ETHZ field phenotyping platform FIP with data from our UAVs sensing systems to make phenotyping technology availible and facilitate a more sustainable use of resources.

Currently, the PhenoFly team is active in three projekts:

  • TraitSpotting crop breeding enhanced by flying robots
  • Innofarm reconciling innovative farming practices and networks to enable sustainable development of smart Swiss farming systems
  • DigiN, digital methods for optimization of crop nitrogen management in Switzerland
