Conventional methods for detecting seed-borne fungi are laborious and time-consuming, requiring specialized analysts for characterization of pathogenic fungi on seed. Multispectral imaging (MSI) combined with machine vision was used as an alternative method to detect Drechslera avenae (Eidam) Sharif [Helminthosporium avenae (Eidam)] in black oat seeds (Avena strigosa Schreb). The seeds were inoculated with Drechslera avenae (D. avenae) and then incubated for 24, 72 and 120 h. Multispectral…

Quantification of chlorophyll fluorescence in soybean seeds by multispectral images and their relationship with physiological potential
Abstract: The multispectral image analysis technique to detect chlorophyll fluorescence (CF) in soybean seeds was studied to assess the relationship between CF signals and seed physiological
An Approach Using Emerging Optical Technologies and Artificial Intelligence Brings New Markers to Evaluate Peanut Seed Quality
Seeds of high physiological quality are defined by their superior germination capacity and uniform seedling establishment. Here, it was investigated whether multispectral images combined with machine
Autofluorescence-spectral imaging as an innovative method for rapid, non-destructive and reliable assessing of soybean seed quality
Autofluorescence-spectral imaging and machine learning algorithms are employed to develop distinct models for classification of soybean seeds differing in physiological quality after artificial aging, showing that the physiological potential of soy bean seeds is reduced accompanied by changes in the concentration and, probably in the structure of autofluorescent compounds.
Multi-Spectral Imaging for Fruits and Vegetables
In the field of agriculture, fruit grading and vegetable classification is an important and challenging task. The current fruit and vegetable classifications are done manually, which results in


Detection of drechslera avenae in oat seeds
Overall, the highest levels of seed infection by D. avenae were observed on oat seeds plated in the osmotic, the oat-agar and the Reis media, or on seeds subjected to heat treatment previous to incubation in malt-agar, so these methods should be recommended for detection of D.avenae in oat seed testing.
Mycoflora and Incidence of Aflatoxin in Wheat Seeds from Duhok Province, Kurdistan Region of Iraq
Identification of fungi that contaminated wheat grains and their aflatoxins production were investigated in Thirty-three samples collected from different sources in Duhok province, Kurdistan region of Iraq during 2014-2015 and showed that A. niger and A. flavus were the most isolated species.
Occurrence, importance and control of mycotoxins: A review
Africa particularly Ethiopian governmental jurisdictions should implement and regulate level of mycotoxins in animal feed stuffs and human foods because health effects occur in companion animals, livestock, poultry and humans.
The Use of Image-Spectroscopy Technology as a Diagnostic Method for Seed Health Testing and Variety Identification
An interesting result of successful distinguishing between the infected and uninfected parts of the seed surface is produced and these components could be used in further studies for the development of a sorting model by combining data from multispectral imaging and SKNIR for identifying disease(s) and varieties.

Polyphenol oxidase as a biochemical seed defense mechanism
Results are consistent with the hypothesis that seeds possess inducible enzyme-based biochemical defenses arrayed on the exterior of seeds and these defenses represent a fundamental mechanism of seed survival and longevity in the soil.
