Measuring plant part characteristics by image analysis has several advantages over traditional manual methods: it is potentially quicker, more accurate and allows objective measurement of features which are more difficult to quantify. A permanent record of the appearance of each sample can also be kept for future reference. BioSS, in collaboration with SASA, has built an easy-to-use software tool, Imagin, to make the image analysis methods routinely available to scientists involved in plant breeding and crop variety registration.
