Plant Phenotyping and Soil Health Facility
The CHAP Plant Phenotyping and Soil Health Facility at Cranfield University brings the latest scientific knowledge and understanding to 21st century farming.
The research conducted here is helping to deliver more profitable farming, increased agricultural productivity, a greener environment, sustainable rural communities and a better diet for populations around the world.
These facilities are unique in providing precision control and monitoring of soil, water, crop and climate conditions allowing for entire rotation systems including required tillage operations in a realistic set up. Supported by a leading team of soil and crop scientists, the facilities enable farmers and agri-tech companies to develop and test innovative technologies to study soil-crop-water interrelationships and improve soil and crop health at pilot scale.
In addition, CHAP collaborates with Agri-EPI in the Plant Phenotyping and Soil Health Facility at Cranfield University, through the use of the in-glasshouse gantry-based phenotyping platform.
