High-throughput plant phenotyping (HTPP) platforms can monitor phenotypic variation through multiple sensor types, generating valuable datasets for characterising the phenotype. However, the lack of appropriate analysis methods leads to the underutilisation of HTPP in crop breeding. This thesis has sought to investigate the advantage of using deep learning models to tackle unsolved challenges in using HTPP datasets for crop research by (i) implementing models for yield prediction of crops under breeding trial; (ii) assessing the advantages of integrating varied data types in the deep learning model; and (iii) building a model to identify weeds among a similar looking crop
