Projecttitel: High-throughput phenotyping for developing hyper-yield and climate resilient soybean in South Korea (PhenSoy)
Land: South Korea
Budget: € 40.000
Projectleider: Rick van de Zedde
Kennisinstelling: Wageningen University & Research
The objective of the PhenSoy project is to explore the possibility for future R&D projects with South Korean partners (public and private) on the subject related to high-throughput phenotyping for developing hyper-yield and climate resilient soybean in South Korea. The aim of the project is to investigate the extent to which the Dutch knowledge and high-tech innovations can be applied in the South Korean soybean sector, and to identify what has to be done to make this happen. We will set up a consortium of several Dutch technology suppliers supported by WUR to interact with South Korean companies/ backed-up by South Korean researchers. We will then translate Dutch solutions specifically for the South Korean market based on the already developed automated sensors and systems for soybean production in the local market.
Topics that will be specifically addressed are:
- High-throughput screening of internal and external quality of soybean (for breeding purpose)
- Digitalisation in greenhouse setting and open field agriculture
- Data acquisition and data analysis
PhenSoy is initiated based on the specific request from Rural Development Administration (RDA) for research collaboration on these topics based on the existing research cooperation agreement between WUR and RDA. The consortium will make use of this research cooperation agreement to make links for future R&D projects and build network with South Korean public and private partners.
