State-of-the-art Technology is used in the Cultivation of Plants
In the agricultural sector, industrial computed tomography provides an insight into the invisible. State-of-the-art technology is used in the cultivation of plants.
Increase yields without using chemical fertilizers.
Insights into the hidden without destroying the plant.
Thus it is possible to examine buds, roots and other plant parts during growth or under different climatic conditions without destroying the plant.
How do breeds behave in different climatic conditions?
- cold heat
One of the most important plant organs, the root, lies hidden.
Roots are crucial for absorbing water and nutrients in plants, as well as anchoring the plant to the soil.
Despite the outstanding importance of the roots for the yield of our cultivated plants, researchers still know very little about this organ.
Several CT with in a defined period of time allow a four-dimensional mapping between time and size. With this method the plant can be viewed three-dimensionally with the fourth dimension time during growth.
