Gnuplantex: a Novel Free Software for Analyzing Texture and Color in Plants; Its Industrial Application.

Authors: Enrique Marcet Garcia

In many industrial applications where plants are used as raw material in the production process, is important to perform a proper phytosanitary and quality control. To perform these controls is possible by raw materials visual inspection, however, to analyze texture and color in plants would allow identifying/quantifying problems as: nutrient deficiencies; diseases (caused by fungi, bacteria, etc.), as well as to identify problems in industrial process. The aims of this paper are: (1) to develop free software (GPL) for texture analysis (GLCM), color measurement (CIELab) and color-difference calculation using CIEDE2000; (2) software application in the analysis of Moringa oleifera Lam leaves. For programming the software we used Perl and wxBasic languages. GNUplantex is easy-to-use software. It is available at:
