Following code may help you to convert PNG images to eps (COLOUR)
fileName = 'FarmerStats'; % your FILE NAME as string
A = imread(fileName,'png');
set(gcf,'visible','off') %suppress figure
axis image % resolution based on image
axis off % avoid printing axis
set(gca,'LooseInset',get(gca,'TightInset')); % removing extra white space in figure
saveas(gcf,fileName,'epsc'); % save as COLOR eps file

Make the plot that you want in MATLAB and save the plot as an .eps file
print -depsc figure.eps
or the appropirate -deps option, see the help for print.

imwrite() cannot create eps. Use print(), or use Oliver's File Exchange Contribution "export_fig".

You realize that png is a bitmap image format and eps is traditionally used for vector graphics. While you can embed a bitmap image into it, it is unclear why you would want to convert a bitmap graphic into a vector graphic.
