On October 11, 2017, Saveer Biotech Limited successfully installed its plant phenomics facility in Pusa (IARI), New Delhi as the nanaji deshmukh plant phenomics centre. Saveer’s plant phenomics facility is the largest in India and one of the most advanced in terms of analytical capabilities among publicly funded institutions worldwide. The centre also has a “Climate Controlled Facility” with eight different greenhouse chambers. The facility has four high-tech climate-controlled greenhouses for plant cultivation under controlled environmental conditions. The facility has 1200 plant carriers with RFID chip tags for plant cultivation. The plant carrier on the moving field conveyer system randomises plants within the greenhouse and transports them for automated weighing and watering, as well as imaging at various imaging platforms. “Climate Controlled Facility” has 8 different greenhouse chambers with precision manage of temperature and CO2. This may be noticeably beneficial to have a look at the interactive results of expanded CO2 with warmth and different climatic pressure factors. Phenomics may be beneficial for correct phenotyping of the germplasm at some point of the lifestyles cycle in managed pressure situations to discover advanced genes and genotypes for improvement weather resilient crop varieties. The picture functions diagnosed in phenomics may be beneficial for UAV- and/or faraway sensing-aided programs for aid and crop control along with fertilizer and water control, crop fitness and disorder analysis for precision agriculture.
The Phenomics Centre will accelerate the development of globally competent scientific human resources in the cutting-edge research areas of digital phenotyping and big data science in order to sustain crop productivity in the face of future climate change. This facility allows researchers to conduct studies that will aid in the development of new plant varieties in order to address growing global concerns about climate change and food security. When combined with gene analysis technologies, phenomics has the potential to revolutionise how key issues in plant and agricultural biology are addressed.
