Biorationals are crop protection products based on natural compounds. Globally, the biorational market is expected to grow at a double-digit rate. However, the efficacy of biorationals for arable crops is difficult to establish in open field crops due to the product’s characteristics and the field assessment methodology constraints. HiPheBia aims at developing a prototype of an innovative, high-throughput phenotyping service to evaluate their efficacy in arable crops, especially against Fusarium sp in wheat. Field experiments will be provided by our potential end-user Eurofins Agroscience Services, a registered DIVA demonstration site. With our solution, our end-users will be able to enlarge their field experiments and collect more data with a guarantee of standardization, quality and traceability. The agricultural value chain will be improved as more biorational solutions will be available for use in arable crops, contributing to a safer and more sustainable agriculture.
