Insights on assessing image processing approaches towards health status of plant leaf using machine learning

Harsha Raju, Veena Kalludi Narasimhaiah


With the advancement of digital image processing in agriculture and crop cultivation, imaging techniques are adopted to acquire real-time health status. Out of all the parts of plants, the leaf is the direct indicator of its health status, and hence applying various image processing approaches could benefit the process of yielding informative cases of plant health. At present, there are various approaches, e.g., feature extraction, segmentation, identification, the classification being evolved up with more dependencies being found in using machine learning; the studies show many contributions towards this challenge. However, it is not yet conclusive to understand the optimal approach. Hence, this paper highlights an explicit strength and weakness associated with the existing approaches existing imaging processing techniques to identify the disease condition from an input of plant leaves' image. The study also contributes to highlighting open-end research problems to have conclusive remarks about effectiveness.
