Abstract: This paper focuses on Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) associated with the K means clustering for efficient plant leaf image segmentation. Segmentation is a basic pre-processing task in many image processing applications and essential to separate plant leafs from the background. Locating and segmenting plants from the background in an automated way is a common challenge in the analysis of plant images. Image segmentation is typically used to locate objects and boundaries (lines, curves, etc.) in images. Image segmentation is a fundamental task in agriculture computer graphics vision. Although many methods are proposed, it is still difficult to accurately segment an arbitrary image by one particular method. In recent years, more and more attention has been paid to combine segmentation algorithms and information from multiple feature spaces (e.g. color, texture, and pattern) in order to improve segmentation results .The performance of the segmentation is analyzed by Jaccard, dice, variation of index and global consistency error method. The proposed approach is verified with real time plant leaf data base. The results of proposed approach gives better convergence when compare to existing segmentation method.
