Plant Lodging
This trait indicates the probability that a plot has been affected by lodging. Lodging is the phenomenon by which the plant bends over the stems near ground level, which can have a dramatic impact on the yield. This trait is computed based on the plant height results through time.

Plant Height
Max Plant Height: This trait refers to the max height recorded within the plot. It is computed using a 3D point cloud of the microplot and maximum is defined as the 99% percentile of the height of each point among plot point cloud. On request, we can compute Max Plant height only on a sub...

Plant Height Heterogeneity
Max Plant Height Heterogeneity: This trait refers to the heterogeneity measured from the max plant height calculation. The plot studied is first sliced into ~30cm patches, the trait is processed per slice and we compute a coefficient of variation (standard deviation among slices divided by mean value of the plot). Mean Plant Height Heterogeneity: This trait...

Organs Count Heterogeneity
This trait refers to the heterogeneity measured from the organ count. The plot studied is first sliced into ~30cm patches, the trait is processed per slice and we compute a coefficient of variation (standard deviation among slices divided by mean value of the plot)

Plant Biovolume Heterogeneity
This trait refers to the heterogeneity measured from the biovolume calculation. The plot studied is first sliced into ~30cm patches, the trait is processed per slice and we compute a coefficient of variation (standard deviation among slices divided by mean value of the plot).

Average Leaf Angle
This trait provides an estimation of the average leaf angle inclination of your crops. A high ALA indicates that the portion of the leaf area receiving energy is low, which could explain a low vegetative growth. This trait is generated by inverting the radiative transfer model PROSAIL.

Canopy Chlorophyll Content
This trait provides an estimation of the chlorophyll content at canopy level. It is calculated by multiplying the LAI (Leaf Area Index) and the Leaf Cholorophyll Content. If the canopy chlorophyll content is high, the leaf contains more chlorophyll and has a potential for higher yield. This trait is generated by inverting the radiative transfer...

Leaf Area Index
LAI represents the maximum projected leaf area per unit of ground surface area. It is generated by inverting the radiative transfer model PROSAIL. Leaves constitute the main part of the crop used for photosynthesis. Leaf area estimation is therefore a good proxy of yield. To be accurate, the model does not distinguished leaf and stems,...
