Plant phenotyping is the characterisation of a plant¿s phenotype, or physical traits e.g. yield, size, colour, disease resistance. By cross-breeding different plant varieties with desirable phenotypes newer varieties can be produced that have these phenotypes enhanced. To be efficient and produce the best results, these traits must be measurable in a quantifiable and accurate way.

Currently, in-situ whole field measurements of wheat ear size involves time-consuming manual measurement. Obtaining these measurements via point clouds may offer a way to this in more reliable and time-efficient manner. We compare a number of different imaging technologies for in-field usage to create point clouds and compare their advantages and disadvantages.
