Executive Summary :

In this research work, disease detection algorithm has five different steps like image acquisition, image pre-processing, image segmentation, deep learning based disease classification and finally severity estimation of the disease. Disease detection and estimating exact severity level of disease help to use an appropriate amount of pesticides to be sprayed in the farm or in tree leaves in order to improve the quality and productivity of crops.
