Original image


Input binary mask


from plantcv import plantcv as pcv

# Set global debug behavior to None (default), "print" (to file), or "plot" (Jupyter Notebooks or X11)
pcv.params.debug = "print"

# Identify objects (plant material) in an image, all objects regardless of hierarchy are filled (e.g. holes between leaves).
id_objects, obj_hierarchy = pcv.find_objects(img, mask)
