    The application of image analysis for variety testing of mushrooms [Agaricus bisporus (Lange) Imbach] to grant plant breeders' rights was investigated. Images of 230 mushrooms were recorded under controlled lighting conditions. Image analysis techniques were used to increase the number of morphological characters that can be measured. The measurements of length, width, and a range of more or less complex shape descriptors, determined by means of image analysis, were statistically analyzed. Image analysis exhibited a significant improvement over previous methods which used only manual assessments.
