SDSC BW: Plant growth by means of image recording

SDSC BW: Plant growth by means of image recording

The da-cons GmbH sells products for the determination of a variety of plant properties. To this end, it has developed the PhenoScreen system, which supports the seed industry in plant breeding and is based on sensors such as cameras, hygrometers and luxmeters. During the growth of the plants significant amounts of images are taken, which previously had to be processed manually. As part of the potential analysis, the SDSC BW examined the question of whether it is digitally possible to reliably detect plants in the image files and then separate them from the image background. The aim is to enable a faster, but above all, more reliable processing of the image series.
