Phenotyping and analysing with a LED paint box

Molecules have specific properties with their absorption and reflection spectrum. By illumination of objects, e.g. seeds, with a series of 19 different LED wavelengths we can differentiate among the objects or area’s in the objects. Training by correlating characters, as fungal infection, with the spectral properties, using strong statistical software from the equipment, we can characterise test objects. We can predict fast or slow germinating tomato seeds.
