To rapidly diagnose the responses of rice to nitrogen (N) fertilizer application and planting density, a simple model based on digital images was developed for predicting and evaluating rice yield. N application rate and planting density had significant.

Algorithms for automatic adjustments attempts to automatically enhance the perceptual quality of an image. Such algorithms are usually used to enhance the perceived quality of images. Digital cameras, often use such algorithms after aquisition, to make the most out of the data captured by the light sensor Automatic white balance control available in commercial cameras is not sufficient to provide reproducible color classification. We address this problem of color constancy on a large image database acquired with varying digital cameras and lighting conditions Careful manual control of the calculation settings still yields the most precise results. However, algorithms for fully automatic calculation parameters are growing in sophistication and may someday be embraced almost universally, perhaps in the same manner as the automatic white balance feature in cameras.
