Abstract—Machine vision approaches for lettuce growth
stage prediction are continuously being developed. Previous
works suggest further extensive study of computer vision
features in determining plant growth. This paper presented an
ANN-based decision support system of classifying lettuce
growth stage by using extracted vision features that included
two morphological features (area, perimeter), 12 color features
(RGB, HSV, YCbCr, Lab), and five textural features (contrast,
energy, correlation, entropy, and homogeneity). Image
processing techniques were used to extract the required vision
features, and the neural network was trained using scaled
conjugate gradient back propagation. The decision support
system exhibited promising results in lettuce growth stage
