Thermal image analysis of wheat crop grown under moisture stress conditions

  title={Thermal image analysis of wheat crop grown under moisture stress conditions},
  author={Koushik Banerjee},
In view of the global climate change and burgeoning population there is a greater constraint on the availability of water for agriculture. Wheat crop growth and yield are much affected by the availability of water during the growing season. Experiments were conducted during the year 2014-15 and 2015-16, to characterize the effects of moisture stress on wheat crop using thermal image analysis. The goal of the study is to apply the principles of infrared thermometry and image analysis to… Expand


Approach to assess infrared thermal imaging of almond trees under water-stress conditions
The results confirm that infrared thermography is a suitable technique for assessing the crop-water status and can be used as an important step towards automated plant-water stress management in almond orchards. Expand
Remote Detection of Physiological Depression in Crop Plants with Infrared Thermal Imagery
The infrared thermal imagery was effective, especially, for detecting phisiological depression or for comparing various canopies in their physiological status on a remote and real-time basis. Expand
Combining thermal and visible imagery for estimating canopy temperature and identifying plant stress.
A new method for processing and analysing thermal images was developed that allows more accurate estimation of the indices, which are consequently more closely related to stomatal conductance, and gives more accurate estimates of the temperature distribution of the shaded and sunlit parts of canopy.

Remote-Monitoring of Function and State of Crop Community : I. Analysis of thermal image of crop canopy
The temperature distribution of crop canopies investigated with and infrared scanning therometer was fitted to gaussian distribution very well and the range of temperature distribution tended to increase with increment of the dip of view. Expand
Thermal infrared imaging of crop canopies for the remote diagnosis and quantification of plant responses to water stress in the field.
Examples of application of the approach to phenotyping in the field and the steps in data analysis are outlined, demonstrating that clear genotypic variation may be detected despite substantial variation in soil moisture status or incident radiation by the use of appropriate normalisation techniques.

Infrared measurement of canopy temperature and detection of plant water stress
SummaryLeaf temperature is directly determined by leaf energy and water balance. If diminished water availability decreases latent heat flux at the leaf surface, a complementary increase of sensibleExpand
Canopy temperature as a crop water stress indicator
Canopy temperatures, obtained by infrared thermometry, along with wet- and dry-bulb air temperatures and an estimate of net radiation were used in equations derived from energy balance considerationsExpand
Thermal Imaging for the Study of Plant Water Relations
The use of infrared thermography for the study of plant water relations is reviewed. Increases in leaf temperature detected by thermography largely reflect stomatal closure as a measure of “stress.”Expand
Study on temporal variation in citrus canopy using thermal imaging for citrus fruit detection
This paper presents a study of the thermal temporal variation in citrus canopy as a potential approach for improving fruit detection for harvesting orange. Tree canopy was monitored on 24 h cyclesExpand
Dynamic analysis of water stress of sunflower leaves by means of a thermal image processing system.
A method for measuring the temperatures of all regions of an intact leaf by using an infrared scanning thermometer at wavelengths between 8 and 14 micrometers combined with a digital image processing system to indicate that there are significant differences in the temperature and water status of different parts of a leaf.
