    Field phenomics has been identified as a promising enabling technology to assist plant breeders with the development of improved cultivars for farmers. Yet, despite much investment, there are few examples demonstrating the application of phenomics within a plant breeding program. We review recent progress in field phenomics and highlight the importance of targeting breeders' needs, rather than perceived technology needs, through developing and enhancing partnerships between phenomics researchers and plant breeders.
