In the rapidly evolving field of agricultural research, high-throughput plant phenotyping stands out as a critical component for advancing plant breeding by optimizing breeding schemes and by improving the desirable trait heritability & genetic gain of your field trials.

Our latest paper delves into the transformative potential of Real-Time Kinematic (RTK) technology, specifically in the realm of drone acquisitions, to elevate the precision and efficiency of phenotypic data collection and processing.

This comprehensive guide provides a meticulous "recipe for success," offering a detailed checklist to ensure RTK-precision in drone operations. We explore the manifold benefits of RTK technology, elucidating its operational mechanics with both base stations, such as EMLID, and various network solutions like Orpheon, Point One, and SmartNet. The paper walks you through step-by-step procedures, distinguishing between RTK FIX and FLOAT modes, and explains the implications of operating without RTK activation.

Furthermore, we discuss advanced options like Post-Processing Kinematic (PPK) to push the boundaries of precision even further. Whether you are a researcher, agronomist, or technology enthusiast, this paper equips you with the knowledge to harness RTK technology for groundbreaking advancements in plant phenotyping.
