Abstract

A better approach to assess plant genetic diversity is the agro-morphological characterization. The main objective of this study was to investigate the morphological variability of 87 maize (Zea mays L.) accessions collected in different agro-ecological zones of southern Benin. Thus, 16...

Abstract

Reducing plant growth to limit their susceptibility to diseases has been proposed as a way to reduce pesticide use, but reducing crop growth may have detrimental effect on yield. In this paper, we test the hypothesis of a trade-off between maintaining grape yield and reducing grapevine...

Abstract

Leaf wetness (LW) is a key environmental variable for the development of foliar fungal diseases of citrus. However, little information of LW duration (LWD) in Mediterranean citrus-growing areas is available. LWD in six canopy positions and two leaf sides was studied with visual observations and...

Abstract

The likely spread of the current spruce budworm (SBW; Choristoneura fumiferana [Clem.]) outbreak from high to low density areas brings to the forefront a pressing need to understand its dispersal dynamics and to document mass exodus flights in relation to weather patterns. In this study, we used...

Abstract

The objective of this research work is to propose a weed detecting robotic model for sugarcane fields that uses a fuzzy real time classifier on leaf textures. The differentiation between weed and crop and weed removal are the two challenging tasks for the farmers especially in the Indian sugarcane...

Abstract

An important goal for orchard and vineyard spraying systems is real-time adjustment of the operating parameters according to the target density, with the aim of keeping the droplets in the canopy, thus improving spray deposition and reducing spray drift. One apple orchard and two vineyards were...

Abstract

Several wild apple accessions (Malus sieversii) from Kazakhstan and two (Malus × soulardii, Malus sylvestris) from other parts of the world are highly resistant to blue mold decay caused by Penicillium expansum. Previous studies on the wound responses of these apples to infection by this fungus...

Abstract

Superficial scald is the most devastating storage disorder of 'd'Anjou' pears (Pyrus communis L.) and the current commercial controlling method of ethoxyquin (Etq) + controlled atmosphere (CA) storage is not adequate for the fruit produced in hot seasons. In the hot years of 2014 and 2015,...

Abstract

Detection and classification of the bruising degree for fruit can provide useful information for appropriate postharvest handling and storage operations. However, the detection of early small bruises, which are hardly to detect directly by vision alone, remains a challenge. In this study, we...

Abstract

Developing an automatic weeding system requires robust detection of the exact location of the crop to be protected from damage. Computer vision techniques can be an effective means of determining plant location. In this paper, a novel algorithm based on colour features and morphological erosion and ...
