ImageThis non-invasive technology enables accurate plant quality assessments before any physiological change is perceived by the naked eye. Plants, and plant parts, can be assessed at any stage of growth. The technology is based on chlorophyll fluorescence, highly correlated to desired plant qualities. Stems, leaves, fruits, berries, and ears may be assessed — the technology is useful in the hothouse, field, or grocery store. Any plant with chlorophyll can be tested for seed vigor, germination, good growth, and freshness. Impacts from drought, herbicides, and insects are easily detectable long before becoming visible. Screening spot measurements can be done, or more general measurements performed, with an imaging detector on an area roughly 1 x 1.5 m.
