Cutting station for plant phenotyping
The desired plants are conveyed to this station where they stop when operations are required. The operator performs the cutting and release the plants when completed.
A typical cutting station is composed of:
-A stopper in the transfer to hold pallets that need cutting
-An RFID reader to identify the plant
-A light indicator (red/green) to identify plants needing operations
-A push-button to release when the operation is completed
-An optional keyboard or touch-screen to input observations stored and synchronized in the system.
