TRAINING COURSE: WHEAT PHENOTYPING USING UAVS
The Wheat Phenotyping to Support Wheat Improvement and Adaptation of Wheat to Abiotic Stress Expert Working Groups of the Wheat Initiative are organizing a training course on the use of UAV (unmanned aerial vehicles)-based phenotyping in wheat research and wheat breeding.
The workshop is part of the Wheat Initiative IWC satellite meetings and workshops https://www.wheatinitiative.org/iwc-satellite-meetings
The course topics include the following:
Phenotyping with UAVs – a checklist
(Hardware, Software, Operating mode)
How to use UAVs to document the quality of trials vs
How to measure novel traits with UAVs
The dos and don’ts of UAV phenotyping –
The things that can go wrong you won’t find in publications
Camera and image calibration – making sure you start with good quality data
Plot identification – looking for a magic solution? You are not alone…
Image and spectral analysis – you got yourself a point cloud, now what?
How to extract traits from plot based data
The course will be held at the University of Saskatoon Campus between 19-20 July 2019 (weekend before IWC 2019).
