Multilayer Convolution Neural Network for the Classification of Mango Leaves Infected by Anthracnose Disease
Abstract-Fungal diseases not only influence the economic importance of the plants and its products but also abate their ecological prominence. Mango tree, specifically the fruits and the leaves are highly affected by the fungal disease named as Anthracnose. The main aim of this paper is to develop an appropriate and effective method for diagnosis of the disease and its symptoms, therefore espousing a suitable system for an early and cost-effective solution of this problem. Over the last few years, due to their higher performance capability in terms of computation and accuracy, computer vision, and deep learning methodologies have gained popularity in assorted fungal diseases classification. Therefore, for this paper, a multilayer convolutional neural network (MCNN) is proposed for the classification of the Mango leaves infected by the Anthracnose fungal disease. This paper is validated on a real-time dataset captured at the Shri Mata Vaishno Devi University, Katra, J&K, India consists of 1070 images of the Mango tree leaves. The dataset contains both healthy and infected leaf images. The results envisage the higher classification accuracy of the proposed MCNN model when compared to the other state-of-the-art approaches.
