Deep learning and hyperspectral imaging technologies team up for diseased potato identification : Modified convolutional neural network uses hyperspectral line scan images for potato plant disease detection
Plant diseases caused by viruses and bacterial infections (Dickeya and Pectobacterium) cause high concern in the cultivation of seed potatoes. Once found in the field, such plants lead to declassification or even rejection of the seed lots resulting in financial loss. These diseases lead to an average 14.5% declassification of seed lots (over the period 2009–2016) and an average 2.3% rejection (source: Dutch General Inspection Service NAK) in the Netherlands, a major supplier of the world’s certified seed potatoes, costing Dutch producers almost 20 million euros per year.
