Congratulations to our labmate, Sheng Zou, and his collaborators: Y. Tseng, A. Zare, D. Rowland, B. Tillman and S. Yoon! Their paper, “Peanut Maturity Classification using Hyperspectral Imagery”, was recently accepted to Biosystems Engineering. This paper describes a method which can be used to estimate the maturity of individual peanut pods, without having to remove the hull of the peanut. Sheng’s and his co-authors’ work provides a valuable tool which can be utilized in seed quality research. Additionally, his method solves the issues of labor intensity and subjectivity error present in all current methods for peanut maturity determination.
Great job, Sheng!
