SCOUTING automatically calculates the damaged leaf area caused by mechanistic, disease or insect damage.
Leaf damage provides an objective quantification of the damaged area and helps to check if thresholds for crop management decisions have been reached.
First, leaf damage detects the leaf to be analyzed. Then, the algorithm calculates the area damaged and returns the percentage damage of the whole leaf.
The leaf in focus is in colour while the rest of the picture will be greyed out. The calculated damage will be shown with a purple overlay.
