Early Drought Plant Stress Detection with Bi-Directional Long-Term Memory Networks
Early drought stress detection is a promising strategy that enables us to move from a reactive to a more proactive approach to manage drought risks and impacts. In this work, we apply for the first time the Bidirectional Long Short-Term Memory (BLSTM) networks to RGB images for accurate drought plant stress detection in the early stage. In addition, an optimal data collection strategy (ODCS) is investigated to use less time and manpower for the purpose of accurate early drought stress condition detection. The proposed method is validated on two independently collected RGB image datasets. In both datasets, the BLSTM method achieves competitive classification performances compared to three other deep learning methods. By using the proposed ODCS, our method can use only ²/³ of the entire dataset to achieve 74.6 percent F-score for the patch sequence classification and 72.0 percent F-score for the image sequence classification.
