PhD Oral Defence of Adeyemi Olutoyin Adegbenjo, Bioresource Engineering

The hatchery industries are faced with huge economic losses in millions of dollars, resulting from incubating nonfertile eggs that will never become chickens. There is therefore an urgent need for non-destructive techniques to predict the fertility and/or hatchability of chicken eggs prior to incubation. This study investigated the use of a near infrared (NIR) hyperspectral imaging technology in a non-destructive assessment of chicken egg fertility.
