Paper about on-line plant stress monitoring

Saturday, March 14th, 2009

A paper dealing with on-line plant stress monitoring, co-authored by Dirk De Pauw (Phyto-IT), was published today. Continuous monitoring of stem diameter variations combined with Unfold Principal Component Analysis (UPCA) allowed for successful on-line stress detection, days before the appearance of visible symptoms. The technique was applied successfully to two plant species: young apple trees and truss tomato plants.
