Machine Learning for Plant Leaf Disease Detection and Classification – A Review


Plants are considered to be important as they are the source of energy supply to mankind. Plant diseases can affect the leaf any time between sowing and harvesting which leads to huge loss on the production of crop and economical value of market. Therefore, leaf disease detection plays a vital role in agricultural field. However, it requires huge manpower, more processing time and extensive knowledge about plant diseases. Hence, machine learning is applied to detect diseases in plant leaves as it analyzes the data from different aspects, and classifies it into one of the predefined set of classes. The morphological features and properties like color, intensity and dimensions of the plant leaves are taken into consideration for classification. This paper presents an overview on various types of plant diseases and different classification techniques in machine learning that are used for identifying diseases in different plant leaves.
