Computed Tomography on Rose Bud

The Spring is Here!

State-of-the-art technology is used in the breeding of plants

In agriculture, industrial computed tomography provides insight into the invisible. State-of-the-art technology is used in plant breeding. Increasing yields without using chemical fertilizers. Insights into the hidden without destroying the plant. This makes it possible to examine buds, roots and other plant parts during growth or under different climatic conditions without destroying the plant.

How do cultivars behave under different climatic conditions?

  • Dryness
  • Humidity
  • Cold Heat

One of the most important plant organs the root is hidden.

Roots are crucial for the uptake of water and nutrients in plants, as well as for anchoring the plant in the soil. Despite this outstanding importance of roots for the yield of our crops, researchers still know quite little about this organ. Several CT with in a defined time span allow a four-dimensional mapping between time and size. With this method, the plant can be viewed in three dimensions with the fourth dimension time during growth.
