PlantCV is a flexible image processing and analysis package written in Python. PlantCV was built to analyze high-throughput phenotyping images from a commercial platform, but has also been used to analyze images from small custom imaging stations. PlantCV is an open-development resource and the community is encouraged to contribute.
