Since 1998, LemnaTec has established itself as a world-leading specialist for hardware and software systems in the field of digital plant phenotyping and high-throughput screening. Digital seed testing and digital phenotyping measures the external appearance of plants in terms of size, shape and color as characteristics for shoot and root growth, productivity and quality. Physiological parameters such as the water and nutrient content of the leaves or photosynthesis are also recorded.


Through the application of LemnaTec’s highly complex, non-invasive sensor and automation technologies, the plants are analyzed contact-free, so that each individual plant can be repeatedly examined and continuous information about the development and health status of the plants is acquired. Main application areas of plant phenotyping at LemnaTec are in agrochemistry, agronomy, plant research and plant breeding, and range from small applications in the laboratory to large-scale installations for greenhouses and open fields.
