For instance, seed for sugar beet is undergoing a complex refurbishment process obtained from sugar beet seeds. At the end of the treatment usually less than 30 % of seeds stay left for processing into pilled seed. Traditionally, the work-up is monitored with radiographic inspection of samples. The radiography of each seed visually assessed provides only very inaccurate data about the quality of the seeds, is connected with high staff costs and requires a lot of experience. Computed tomography (CT), in contrast to radiography results in complete volume images of the seeds, a much more accurate evaluation of the quality of seeds and its components. The evaluation of the resulting large amounts of images can efficiently done with the help of an automatic image analysis. The presented CT automat Seed Inspector conducts a fully automatic test for the evaluation of sugar beet seeds.
