Automatic Grading of Palm Oil Fruit using Computer Vision - Applying Data Science In Agriculture

Updated: Mar 19

Palm oil is a crucial commodity in the global market, and its production and distribution rely heavily on the grading and sorting of palm oil fruit (FFB). The current grading process is often manual and involves trained personnel who visually inspect the fruit, leading to subjective grading and inconsistencies. Moreover, the process is time-consuming, costly, and prone to errors, leading to a significant loss of revenue. We will discover in this article how with Computer Vision we can completely automate this process and gain efficiency and accuracy with significant savings.

What is computer vision?

Computer vision is an interdisciplinary field that focuses on enabling machines to interpret, analyze, and understand images and videos. It uses advanced algorithms and techniques to extract meaningful information from visual data, enabling businesses to automate and optimize various processes. One of the areas where computer vision can have a significant impact is in agriculture, particularly in the grading of agricultural products such as palm oil fruit.

Applying computer vision to FFB Grading

We have developed a computer vision solution that can automatically grade palm oil fruit with high accuracy and consistency. The solution uses state-of-the-art machine learning algorithms and deep learning techniques to analyze the images of the palm oil fruit and assign them a grade based on pre-defined quality parameters.

The system comprises a high-resolution camera that captures images of the palm oil fruit as they move on a conveyor belt. The images are then processed using advanced computer vision algorithms that identify the relevant features, such as color, size, shape, and texture, to determine the quality of the fruit.

The grading system is trained using a large dataset of palm oil fruit images, which is used to build a robust model that can accurately classify the fruit into various grades. The system is also designed to learn from feedback and continuously improve its accuracy over time.


Automating the grading process using computer vision has numerous benefits. Firstly, it increases efficiency and reduces the cost of grading, as it eliminates the need for manual labor. Secondly, it ensures consistency and accuracy in grading, leading to better quality control and improved product quality. Lastly, it increases the productivity of the overall production process, leading to an increase in revenue.
