1. A method for the rapid analysis of the effect of a transgene of interest on a selected phenotypic parameter in corn, the method comprising the steps of:

  • providing a population of transgenic corn plants grown in an environmentally controlled greenhouse environment;

    providing a light spectrum digital analyzing device;

    using the light spectrum digital analyzing device to take original reflected light images of each plant and then analyze those images to determine a value for the phenotypic parameter in each plant; and

    calculating a mean or median value of the phenotypic parameter and the biological variance for the population of transgenic plants;

    whereby any statistically significant difference between the phenotypic parameter value for a single member of the population of transgenic plants and the mean or median value for the population of transgenic plants may be considered attributable to the transgene of interest.
