Agriculture and its productivity has a good impact of the economic growth of every country. A path to good agricultural productivity depends on the disease susceptibility of the plants as well as early disease detection technologies for better production. Manual diagnosis of plant diseases needs expert knowledge along with awareness. So, automatic disease detection and identification of plants by application of computer vision approaches is of utmost importance. In this paper, different computer vision approaches for plant disease detection are analyzed. The results demonstrate the effectiveness of various methods in leaf disease detection.
