Unraveling the genetic basis of complex traits in plants is limited by the lack of appropriate phenotyping platforms that enable high-throughput screening of many genotypes in multilocation field trials. Near-infrared spectroscopy on agricultural harvesters and spectral reflectance of plant canopies have recently been reported as promising components of novel phenotyping platforms. Understanding the genetic basis of complex traits is now within reach with the use of these new techniques. © 2007 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
