Imagine a future where food security is no longer a distant dream but a tangible reality.  What’s needed though, is the development of novel adaptive crops and cropping systems required for future food production and food security without destroying our planet. Here is where plant phenotyping comes in; the game changer that will vastly contribute to make food security possible and sustainable agriculture available.

Netherlands Plant Eco-phenotyping Centre (NPEC) is at the forefront of this transformation, pioneering the development of adaptive crops and cropping systems that will feed generations to come. Step into the future of agriculture with Rick van de Zedde and embark on a journey through this national research facility, housed by Wageningen University & Research and Utrecht University.

NPEC offers private companies and the academic community services to carry out accurate high-throughput plant measurements on field, in a ultra-modern greenhouse and fully automated growth rooms with advanced imaging systems.

As you wander through the lush greenery and hear the hum of state-of-the-art imaging systems, you’ll realize that NPEC is not just a research facility—it’s a catalyst for change. Generated vast amounts of data it’s a true candy story for data scientists. Here, data scientists revel in the wealth of data generated, unlocking new possibilities for AI developments that will revolutionize agriculture as we know it.

So, are you ready to witness the future of farming unfold before your eyes? Join us for a visit to NPEC and discover the thrilling world of sustainable agriculture.
