Phenotyping at the summer school

This summer, the Campus in Wageningen was the stage for the Summer School Plant Phenotyping. The 4 day programme included both lectures and hands-on training, offering researchers working on automatic phenotyping and technical experts in breeding companies who use, or plan to use, image analysis. A pleasant, challenging and rewarding summer school.



This year’s edition, just like last years, was fully booked. Participants from all over the world travelled to Wageningen to learn more about phenotyping. The summer school is organized by Wageningen University & Research (WUR) and the University of Nottingham with support from IPPN, Phenomenall Cost and several sponsors.



The course leaders Gerrit Polder and Rick van de Zedde together with lecturers from the University of Nottingham, WUR and guest speakers from several companies, provided a diverse programme regarding the following subjects:
  • Images and image quality
  • Noise and noise removal
  • Segmentation
  • Multi- and hyperspectral imaging
  • Machine learning
  • 3D imaging
  • Open session and case studies


During the course there was ample time for discussion with the experts and each other and of course also time for socializing and networking.



Course leader Rick van de Zedde: “What inspires me most are the interactive sessions; new and refreshing insights emerge, because of the different disciplines of the participants and teachers from industry and academia”.
