Why join this Summer School?

After following this programme you know about the latest insights in imaging techniques applied to plant phenotyping. Furthermore, you will be able to apply it in daily practice in your experiments.

If you want to experience, learn and get a ‘picture’ of the state of art related to current imaging technologies and analysis tools this is the place to be. My expectations on this were fullfilled in all aspects! A group of enthousiastic teaching staff from WUR but also from abroad made this all possible for a group of 11 nationalities.
