In the context of plant leaf roughness analysis for precision spraying, this study explores the capability and the performance of some combinations of pattern recognition and computer vision techniques to extract the roughness feature. The techniques merge feature extraction, linear and nonlinear dimensionality reduction techniques, and several kinds of methods of classification. The performance of the methods is evaluated and compared in terms of the error of classification. The results for the characterization of leaf roughness by generalized Fourier descriptors for feature extraction, kernel-based methods such as support vector machines for classification and kernel discriminant analysis for dimensionality reduction were encouraging. These results pave the way to a better understanding of the adhesion mechanisms of droplets on leaves that will help to reduce and improve the application of phytosanitary products and lead to possible modifications of sprayer configurations.
