Development of a Recognition System for Alfalfa Leaf Diseases Based on Image Processing Technology

Abstract : To implement rapid identification and diagnosis of leaf diseases on alfalfa, an image-based recognition system was developed using the GUIDE platform under MATLAB software environment. An integrated segmentation method of K_median clustering algorithm and linear discriminant analysis was applied to implement the lesion image segmentation in this developed recognition system. A multinomial logistic regression model for disease recognition was built based on 21 color, shape and texture features selected by using correlation-based feature selection method. Using this system, disease image reading, image segmentation and lesion image recognition can be done. This system can be applied to conduct image recognition of four common kinds of leaf diseases on alfalfa including alfalfa Cercospora leaf spot, alfalfa rust, alfalfa common leaf spot and alfalfa Leptosphaerulina leaf spot. Some basis was provided for further development of image recognition system of various alfalfa diseases and for building a network-based automatic diagnosis system of alfalfa diseases.
