Learn more about the technologies that TERRA-MEPP has developed to analyze food and bioenergy crops throughout the growing season to identify plants with desirable, heritable traits.


We are developing an autonomous robot equipped with sensors to measure plant traits related to improved yield.


We are designing software to manage the robot’s data, predict yield, and teach the robot to recognize new traits.


We are breeding improved varieties of sorghum using the traits uncovered by the robot and software.


We are conducting a cost-benefit analysis to identify key market opportunities for these technologies.
