PhotosynQ Platform

Most plant research happens in highly controlled lab conditions. Unfortunately, the plants that human beings care most about grow outside where weather, bugs, and animals all impact their growth and health. PhotosynQ is a platform for measuring plant health at a fundamental level in the field, where it matters most. Our goal is to accelerate agricultural research through simplifying collaboration, data sharing, and increasing access to sensors and the skills needed to use them.


The PhotosynQ platform

Gather crop physiological data using high quality, low cost sensors and your cell phone. Connect the data to a project, where you and collaborators can aggregate, visualize, map, and analyze your results. Manage projects with 1 to 1000 collaborators with tools to ensure comparable, consistent, and validated data.

12 man hours

More Impact, Less Work

The sophisticated yet inexpensive MultispeQ device measures key crop physiological data at a fraction of the cost and time of similar devices.

16 seconds per measurement

photosynthetic yield, relative chlorophyll content, light intensity, and over a dozen more parameters to be gathered simultaneously

Less than 30 minutes training

needed to begin collecting high quality data in the field



for anyone in the US or abroad, from experts users to novices

To phenotype 100 plots


Scientific Quality Sensors

Flexible, open source hardware and software allows anyone to add or modify sensors

Smart Data Management

 Spreadsheets don't scale as your project grows. PhotosynQ was built for researchers by researchers with all the features you need.
