Tomato leaf diseases are a big issue for producers, and finding a single method to combat them is tough. Deep learning techniques, notably convolutional neural networks (CNNs), show promise in recognizing early indicators of illness, which can help producers avoid costly concerns in the future. In this study, we present a CNN-based model for the early identification of tomato leaf diseases to preserve output and boost yield. We used a dataset from the plantvillage database with 11,000 photos from 10 distinct disease categories to train our model. Our CNN was trained on this dataset, and the suggested model obtained an astounding 96% accuracy rate. This shows that our method has the potential to be efficient in detecting tomato leaf diseases early on, therefore assisting producers in managing and reducing disease outbreaks and, as a result, resulting in higher crop yields.
