Abstract

At present fodder is assessed subjectively. The evaluation depends greatly on a personal opinion and there can be large variations in assessments. The project has investigated the use of machine vision in several ways,
to provide measures of fodder quality that will be ojective
and independent of the assessor. Growers will be able to
quote a quality measure that buyers can trust. The research
includes the possibility of discerning colour differences that are beyond the capability of the human eye, while still using equipment that is of relatively modest cost.
