A Prediction Algorithm for Paddy Leaf Chlorophyll Using Colour Model Incorporate Multiple Linear Regression
Keywords:Chlorophyll estimation, image processing, regression analysis.
This paper proposes the chlorophyll prediction in Pathumthani1 rice based on the image processing technique. The algorithm is developed to analyse the colour in the image by separating the components from rice leaf and computing the average value of red, green, and blue colours (RGB colours). The relationship between the average value and the amount of the chlorophyll is measured by using the chlorophyll meter SPAD-502 with multiple linear regressions. The results showed that the average value of the RGB colours is highly correlated with the amount of the chlorophyll from the rice leaf. To evaluate the accuracy, the chlorophyll prediction has been tested with 60 different rice leaves and the accuracy of the proposed method is 96.12%.
