Plant-ground segmentation is one of the most important steps in the process of plant classification. Plant segmentation is used for the process of weed detection in fields, vegetation coverage estimation from satellite images, detection of illness in plants, water level detection in plants, etc. There are quite a few approaches presented in the literature that use different types of color indexes, segmentation and classification techniques for the purpose of weed segmentation. In this paper we apply the SegNet deep learning architecture for plant weed segmentation. The images are taken from approximately 1m height under slightly varying lightning condition from the same field using a smart phone regular RGB camera with auto-focus. The presented results show that it is possible to successfully train a deep learning model based on a single image and obtain similar results to the best plant segmentation techniques available that use color indexes without expensive cameras.
