We installed our custom built instruments T-SWIFT (Tower Spectrometer on Wheels for Investigations with Frequent Timeseries) and BEYONCE (Breathing Ecosystem Y'all: Optical Near Surface Camera Equipment) in 1) Vineyards to investigate plant response to imposed water stress and understand how spectra could be used to predict berry chemistry; 2) A common bean field with 320 different genotypes in control and drought treatments to assess the ability of high-throughput phenotyping to understand physiological response of the plants; 3) We also installed simple NDVI imaging cameras on three towers in a massive poplar plantation with ~1,000 genotypes.
