Leaf area plays an important role in plant growth analysis and photosynthesis. Traditionally leaf area is measured by regression equitation, grid count method, gravimetric method and planimeter. In this paper a simple, fast and accurate algorithm for leaf area measurement using image processing is implemented. Image is acquired using digital camera and stored in JPEG format. RGB image is color transformed into CIELAB color space. Color transformed image is segmented using threshold technique…
