Plant disease analysis is one of the critical tasks in the field of agriculture. Automatic identification and classification of plant diseases can be supportive to agriculture yield maximization. In this paper we compare performance of several Machine Learning techniques for identifying and classifying plant disease patterns from leaf images. A three-phase framework has been implemented for this purpose. First, image segmentation is performed to identify the diseased regions. Then, features are extracted from segmented regions using standard feature extraction techniques. These features are then used for classification into disease type. Experimental results indicate that our proposed technique is significantly better than other techniques used for Plant Disease Identification and Support Vector Machines outperforms other techniques for classification of diseases.
