In the Philippines, rice grains have their distinct characteristics from each other variety in terms of quality and on how they plant. The quality and variety of different rice grains is usually determined by visual inspection and pure instincts, which is subjective, laborious, and prone to error. Due to this errors, many consumers were deceived by the retailers in buying pure quality rice. In result, a formulation of an alternative method with the help of the current technology to determine the different rice variety is conducted. This research was conducted with the objective of developing an appropriate computer routine algorithm that can characterize rice grains of different origins in different parts of the Philippines. Morphological analyses through image processing techniques were employed to automatically classify and determine the ranges of the parameters of the rice grain samples according to their variety. Important rice grain features based in morphology such as area of the grain, perimeter, equivalent diameter and percentage of roundness from 60 training images and 20 testing images were gathered and evaluated. Fuzzy Logic technique was conducted to classify the rice grain as well as the K Nearest Neighbor (KNN) that was employed to automatically categorize the variety of the rice grains. In conclusion, the results of this study have revealed that imaging technique with the aid of artificial intelligence could be used as an effective method to classify rice grain characteristics.
