The National Plant Science Council established the Phenome 2018 conference as one of the outcomes of The Decadal Vision. The Decadal Vision calls for the implementation of new paradigms that blur disciplinary boundaries to fulfill the potential of the bioeconomy, which is poised to grow beyond its traditional products of food, feed, fuel, and fiber. 

The North American Plant Phenotyping Network (NAPPN) is an association of researchers active in the scientific discipline of plant phenotyping, including developers and consumers of methods and technologies. NAPPN is connected to the global phenotyping community through the International Plant Phenotyping Network (IPPN) and its affiliates.
