Identifying the plant leaf images will play a key role in preventing great loss in the yield and quantity of production in farm. Study of leaf disease means the scientific study of disease in plant leaves which is caused by infectious organisms and physiological conditions. Keeping track of health and identifying of disease of plant leaves in early stage is very crucial in agriculture. Identifying plant leaf disease manually is very difficult as it needs lot of work, only the expertise will be able to identify the plant disease. So we mainly prefer image processing so as to detect leaf disease. Detection of disease will include several steps such as image-acquisition, image-preprocessing, image-segmentation, feature-extraction and also categorization.
