dc.description.abstract <p>An automatic thresholding technique was developed to segment the background from the images of corn germplasm (ears of corn). The technique was a modification of Otsu’s algorithm using probability theory. Three different measures were used to evaluate the performance of the modified Otsu’s algorithm for background segmentation and subsequent dimensional measurement of corn germplasm. Modified Otsu’s algorithm was found to perform better than Otsu’s algorithm and was successful in automatic background segmentation of all 80 images of corn germplasm included in the study. This modified algorithm also eliminated the misclassification of exposed cob in the image as background which occurred with Otsu’s algorithm. Subsequent dimensional measurements based on the segmentation by the modified algorithm were also highly accurate.</p>
