STUDY ON EXTRACTION METHODOLOGY OF RICE GROWTH CHARACTERISTICS IN FIELD USING TERRESTRIAL LASER MEASUREMENT DATA
Smart agriculture is recommended for labor-saving, refinement and high quality production of rice cultivation with safety and security. The Terrestrial laser measurement has the advantage of acquiring 3D point cloud information with high accuracy and high density, but there is a disadvantage that it becomes difficult to measure the base of rice plant when paddy rice grew. In this study, the 3D point cloud information obtained by terrestrial laser measurement was used to three-dimensionally measure the growth state in the field corresponding to the growing period in time series. The growth characteristics of the whole field as a community were extracted as a representative value of mean growth. Then we attempted extraction of individual differences in growth and growth unevenness, as the deviation from the mean value of the field in terms of the growth characteristics of each strain focused on the individual plants. it is difficult to observe the root of the rice during the growing period, it was used for analyzing the growth quantity as the growth difference height for each growing period by obtaining the difference of the elevation value of the rice at the early stage of growth and at each stage of growing. The spatial variation in the growth quantity of the whole field area and the local area was calculated, the range of the deviation for evaluating the mean variation and the growth abnormality was examined, and the setting of the threshold for evaluating the growth normal and abnormality was examined.
