Abstract This paper presents a novel method for identifying three varieties Taikong 9, Tainan 11, and Taikong 14 of foundation paddy seeds. Taikong 9, Tainan 11, and Taikong 14 paddy seeds are indistinguishable by inspectors during seed purity inspections. The proposed method uses image segmentation and a key point identification algorithm that can segment paddy seed images and extract seed features. A back propagation neural network was used to establish a classifier based on seven features that could classify the three paddy seed varieties. The classification accuracies of the resultant classifier for varieties Taikong 9, Tainan 11, and Taikong 14 were 92.68%, 97.35% and 96.57%, respectively. The experimental results indicated that the three paddy seeds can be differentiated efficiently using the developed system. View Full-Text
