Open Plant Phenotyping Database

Link to full paper

The Open Plant Phenotyping Database [OPPD] is a public dataset for visual recognition tasks on images of plant seedlings.

The dataset consists of 7,590 RGB images with 315,038 plant objects, representing 64,292 individual plants from 47 different species. Each plant species has been cultivated using three growth conditions (ideal, drought and natural) and tracked temporally to achieve high intra-species variability.
The physical resolution in the images measured at soil level is roughly 44 pixels/mm2

The database currently feature samples from the following species:
