The agriculture business loses money and time due to plant diseases. Diagnosing disease accurately takes skill and devotion. Infected plants may have spots or streaks of a different color on their leaves. Several fungal, bacterial, and viral species can also infect plants. Individual plant disease signs and indications are assessed. Neural network applications are growing. Recent research studies have determined how well machine learning reviews traditional plant disease diagnosis methods. Deep learning, a subset of machine learning, may increase plant disease identification accuracy with a convolutional neural network model.

Keywords: Machine learning, plant disease, detection, deep learning, convolutional neural network (CNN), accuracy parameter
