Water Efficient Sorghum Technologies (WEST) is developing crops that use less water to produce more biomass. The first step to achieve this goal is to measure evaporation on a large scale. We use our expertise in remote sensing and high-throughput phenotyping to assess water use efficiency in plant over the growing season.
