High throughput evaluation of sorghum lines and hybrids with improved water-use-efficiency.
Thermal imagery from a camera (FLIR T420) mounted on a 10-meter mast will initally be used to identify candidate lines with warmer that average canopies (i.e., lower transpiration). The candidate lines will then be monitored at 15 minute intervals using the Standard SmartCrop sensors (Smartfield, Inc. Lubbock, TX).
