4th International Plant Phenotyping Symposium
hosted by CIMMYT
El Batan, Texcoco, México
13 to 15 December 2016


The 4th International Plant Phenotyping Symposium organized by CIMMYT focused on 3 main themes: 

  • Advances in Plant Phenotyping Technologies to explore the frontiers of what can be sensed remotely and other technological breakthroughs
  • Adding Value to Phenotypic Data to review how phenomics and genomics can combine to improve crop simulation models and breeding methodologies (for example, genomic selection).
  • Phenotyping for Crop Improvement to consider the application of phenotyping technologies for crop improvement (breeding, crop husbandry, and estimating the productivity of agro-ecosystems).

On the final day of the symposium, participants had the opportunity to attend interactive workshops addressing the needs, opportunities, and bottlenecks in phenotyping, with an eye to developing short position papers for proceedings or a journal special issue.
