A vision based method for automatic evaluation of germination rate of

rice seeds
Alternate Title
IOT based Computerized Growth analysis of Seeds using MLRM Technique
Abstract
Rice is one of the most cultivated cereals in Asian countries and Vietnam in
particular. Good seed germination is important for rice seed quality that
impacts the rice production and crop yield. Currently, seed germination
evaluation is carried out manually by experienced persons. This is a tedious
and time consuming task. In the existing work, we present a system for
automatic evaluation of germination rate of rice seeds based on advanced
techniques in computer vision and machine learning. We propose to use U-Net
- a convolution neural network - for segmentation and separation of rice seeds.
In the proposed work a systematic approach is developed. Seeds germination
rate is tracked by comparing the numerous datasets of germinated and non-
germinated samples; also a new approach called Multi-level Root Metric Ratio
(MLRM) method is evaluated here to analyze the growth quality of the seed for
different environmental conditions. A vision based approach is handled here
using internet.
