Remote sensing technology plays an important role in agriculture applications, especially for paddy growth stages classification, which is a critical process in predicting crop production. The analysis of multi bands data covering very large swath areas using iterative methods such as neural network or SVM will certainly cost much computation time. This paper addresses this problem by taking advantage from a non-iterative tuning capability of Extreme Learning Machine (ELM) for paddy growth stages classification using MODIS (Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer) remote sensing images. The accuracy of classification is measured by Cohen's kappa. Seven classes are used in classification, with consist of six classes for paddy growth stages and one class for dominated cloud. The contribution of this study is a new ensemble incremental approaches based on random bootstrap resampling for basic ELM (B-ELM) and Error Minimized ELM (EM-ELM) are applied to build multi-class classifier using two types of hidden nodes function, i.e. additive and radial basis function (RBF) hidden nodes. The classification results were compared each other with these two types of hidden nodes. Our ensemble incremental approach successfully classify seven paddy growth stages and significantly improve the overall kappa coefficient to 10.2% higher with only in average 7 nodes addition overhead.
