Dr. Ittai Herrmann

My lab is the Plant Sensing Laboratory.

We use a collection of Remote and Proximal Sensing techniques and scales in the open field as well as more controlled environments, to obtain non-destructive data and imagery. A variety of techniques including Machine Learning and Image Processing are implemented.

The ability to nondestructively assess plant traits is explored and used to detect a-biotic and biotic stresses, predict yield and assess plant phenology among other applications.

Welcome Dr Ittai Herrmann

November 20, 2018

We welcome Dr Ittai Herrmann to the Institute. 

Dr. Hermanni is setting up the Plant Sensing Laboratory. The lab will use remote and proximal sensing techniques, both in the field and in controlled environments, to nondestructively assess plant traits, detect stress, redict yield and assess plant phenology.
