Image analysis for detecting diseases in potato crops (Subproject 2b)

This project focuses on sensor technology  for recognizing diseased and non-diseased plants in seed potato crops. Various sensor techniques are tested for both viral and bacterial diseases. The study should reveal what technique (or combination of techniques) is the most suitable. For both type of diseases an algorithm will be developed to distinguish between diseased and non-diseased plants.

Project partners: Kverneland Group Nieuw-Vennep B.V., Agrico, HZPC Holland B.V., NAK, Phenovation B.V., BO Akkerbouw, Wageningen University & Research.
Coordinating research institute: Wageningen University & Research: Jan Kamp (trekker), Pieter Blok en Gerrit Polder
