The Netherlands Plant Eco-phenotyping Centre (NPEC) is a joint initiative of Wageningen University & Research and Utrecht University. The NPEC facility in Wageningen officially opened at the end of September. This integrated, national research facility is housed by Wageningen University & Research and Utrecht University and is co-funded by The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO).
The NPEC comprises six experimental, complementary modules for high throughput analysis of plants from both below and above ground. Automatic phenotyping will enable faster plant breeding by facilitating studies of plant performance in relation to biotic and abiotic factors.
