Abstract
In this work, the use of expert systems and hyperspectral imaging in the determination of coffee rust infection was evaluated. Three classifiers were trained using spectral profiles from different stages of infection, and the classifier based on a support vector machine provided the best performance. When this classifier was compared to visual analysis, statistically significant differences were observed, and the highest sensitivity of the selected classifier was found at early stages of infection.
