The use of digital technologies and artificial intelligence techniques for the automation of some visual assessment processes in agriculture is currently a reality. Image-based, and recently deep learning-based systems are being used in several applications. Main challenge of these applications is to achieve a correct performance in real field conditions over images that are usually acquired with mobile devices and thus offer limited quality. Plagues control is a problem to be tackled in the field. Pest management strategies relies on the identification of the level of infestation. This degree of infestation is established through a counting task manually done by the field researcher so far. Current models were not able to appropriately count due to the small size of the insects and on the last year we presented a density map based algorithm that superseded state of the art methods for a single insect type. In this paper, we extend previous work into a multiclass and multi-stadia approach. ...
