“For this study, strawberry plants were infected by thrips, the contamination of which could be detected after only 2 days with an electrophysical sensor. This means a significant time saving compared with visual inspection.”

What is plant electrophysiology?2022-09-22T17:43:05+01:00

Plants use internal electrical, hydraulic and chemical signalling networks to coordinate growth and defence. Electrical signals are some of the fastest to spread information across the entire plant. Vivent’s technology, and artificial intelligence, lets researchers interpret this information to measure plant health, and to diagnose stressful conditions e.g. pathogens prior to visible symptoms. In response to (a)biotic stimuli the ion transporters in many individual plant cells respond simultaneously, producing an electrical change characteristic of that stimuli. Advanced signal processing isolates this characteristic in different time scales and provides an accurate diagnosis of the plant’s condition in real time.

How do the plant sensors work?2022-09-22T17:21:14+01:00

Two silver electrodes are attached to a plant and its internal electrical signals are amplified and recorded. Our plant sensors can monitor up to 8 plants at the same time. The electrodes typically stay in place throughout the entirety of an experiment.

A live view of plant electrophysiology signals shows how plants are responding to current environmental conditions and when a plant reacts to a stressor, like a change in temperature or insect infestation.This information provides valuable evidence of differences in genetic backgrounds, growing conditions, and on the efficacy of treatments.

Are the plant signals live on the dashboard?2022-09-22T17:37:46+01:00

No, the plant signals available on the dashboard are a day old. Each night, new data is uploaded on the dashboard.

If you would like to see real-time reactions from the plants, you would need to connect to your device’s network and type in your web browser.

Can I monitor plant signals remotely?2022-09-22T17:30:56+01:00

Yes. As long as the device is connected to a wifi network, the data is automatically uploaded and is available on the dashboard. The dashboard can be accessed from anywhere. You could then monitor an experiment happening in a lab from the comfort of your home.

Can the plant sensors be used outdoor?2022-09-28T08:18:36+01:00

Yes, we can provide watertight cases to protect the plant sensors.

The plant sensors do require mains power or solar panels as well as wifi or a 4G connection.

What types of analyses are possible on the dashboard?2022-09-26T10:31:36+01:00

Users can plot traces, daily amplitudes, and a “grow-wave” showing the natural growth rhythm of a plant.

Multiple machine learning based analyses are possible including but not limited to: -general stress, -calcium deficit, -drought, -grouped growth index (a plant health index), -synchronicity, -irrigation model.

How many plants per sensor can I monitor?2022-09-26T17:42:38+01:00

Vivent offers a 2 channel and a 8 channel device. Each channel can monitor 1 plant. Therefore, one can measure up to 8 plants with a single device.

To achieve statistical evidence, we suggest monitoring at least 64 plants with half in optimal condition, while the other half experiences a certain type of stimuli.
