An image analysis system with the capability to acquire and combine three-dimensional laser range data and two-dimensional camera contour extracted images was used to discriminate between cereal grains and weed seeds and between soft white and club wheats, two- and six-rowed barleys, and rye and triticale kernels. Discriminant functions were established to discriminate between wheat and nonwheat with 99.5% accuracy and between nonwheat and wheat with 98.3% accuracy. The discrimination between two soft white and two club wheats was about 90% accurate. The discrimination between two- and six-rowed barley was about 90% accurate, between barley and other grains 97% accurate, and between rye, triticale, and other grains 90% accurate. Discrimination between wheat, soybeans, oats, wild oats, dent corn, flint corn, wild buckwheat, sorghum, and lamb's-quarter was almost 100% accurate.
