Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9932876A1] The invention concerns an analysing device non-destructive of plants and a vehicle comprising such device on board. Said device comprises a unit (3) transmitting a calibrated excitation laser beam (6), a unit (4) measuring and imaging the fluorescence emitted by the irradiated plant(s) (2) and a unit for digitally processing, storing and editing or displaying the collected images, associated with a computer unit controlling and managing the device operation. The invention is characterised in that the transmitting unit (3) provides at least two laser excitation wavelengths and the measuring and imaging unit (4) comprises means (7, 8, 9) for forming, from a common fluorescence beam (6') emitted by the plant(s), simultaneously or successively, at least two secondary beams, each having its own wavelength and each constituting a fluorescence image at a matrix sensor (10), over the whole surface thereof or over part of the surface thereof, each image being separate for each secondary beam.
