In collaboration with PhenoRob, the all-day workshop on field robotics took place on the grounds of the “patchCROP” landscape laboratory of the Leibniz Centre for Agricultural Landscape Research (ZALF) in Tempelberg on May 3. The workshop consisted of lectures and a panel discussion with experts from science and industry as well as exhibitions and technology demonstrations which provided information on the latest research and development in digital agricultural technology and its application in new agricultural systems. For instance, PhenoRob Principal Investigator Prof. Anne-Katrin Mahlein talked about her latest research results on the use of drones to detect plant diseases. “A real lab, like in patchCROP, offers the possibilities to bring the technologies developed in research institutions like PhenoRob into practice,” says Anne-Katrin Mahlein.
