Considering the climate change driver of evolution in agriculture, plant breeding is nowadays strongly focused on the adaptation of genotypes to climate uncertainty and to the various climatic stresses that are becoming more frequent. A continuous measurement of the plant behavior could allow to assess the capability to face these different hazards. Based on Vegetal Signals current plant electrophysiological signal acquisition and processing technology, our project aims to develop a method for diagnosing thermic and water stress tolerance for varietal selection. The project is led by Vegetal Signals in collaboration with Antedis and JS Consulting, two companies active on the seed breeding market with a strong expertise in conducting agronomic trials. Our ambition is to setup a small-scale demonstration of our phenotyping capacity as a first step before the commercialization of a phenotyping service which would be distributed by Antedis and JS Consulting. One major seed production company has already indicated its interest in the use of the phenotyping service that could be settled up at the end of the project.
