Abstract :

Number of fresh fruit bunches can be identified and located for each tree in palm oil plantation. Currently, black bunch census was done manually to estimate yield. By introducing this system, yield production of the fresh fruit bunch in a certain palm oil plantation can be estimated with a systematic and organized figure. This can be achieved by video acquisition using a high resolution 360-camera integrated with MATLAB software for video image processing to get a 360-degree view of each tree. Based from the standard crop arrangement, it is time consuming to circle each tree to acquire the 360-view of each tree. In order to overcome this, a new method is established with the execution of ATV between rows in plantation area for video acquisition. As a result, a new method for video acquisition is established as well as the method for bunch counting for large scale plantation area.
