Research infrastructures & field sites

IBG-2 hosts an extensive portfolio of research facilities and experimental fields

The application of the increased knowledge of molecular control mechanisms requires mulit-discinplinary approaches. On the basis of moelcular, physiological and ecological expertise, integrated concepts and infrastructures for an intensified and sustainable crop production are being established.


IBG-2 develops and runs mechanistic high-throughput and field phenotyping facilities ar various scales using non-invasive devices to measure key structural and functional parameters of plants above- and below-ground.

The methods portfolio includes:

  • non-invasive quantification of growth, chlorophyll fluorescence, hyperspectral data, and
  • automated plant screening facilities under controlled growth chamber and greenhouse conditions, as well as field plots.
