Students build android-based agri plant disease detection kit

The final year students of computer science and engineering, of Srinivas Institute of Technology, have developed an Android-based project “agricultural plant disease detection.”

The students Shraddha Krishnanad Bhat, Sowmya, Prajnashree, Supritha M have developed the android-based project under guidance of Nagaraja Hebbar N.
It has won first place in intra-collegiate competition conducted by the institute for its students, Principal Shrinivasa Mayya D said.

This project will be useful to recognise diseases affecting plants using leaf image. The project is helpful especially for farmers as they will also get medication details for the corresponding disease through this application. In the present day, agricultural plants are affected by different types of disease.

Remedial steps
This application helps farmer in obtaining details pertaining to disease afflicting their
crop and the remedial steps they can take to check the disease.

The application basically identifies diseases based on damage patterns observed in leaves of agricultural plants. Application also indicates prescribed medication according to the disease condition which was affected to the agricultural plants.

This project would help farmer, for taking quick decisions related to the yields.   If proper medication is applied in the initial stage, farmers can protect their yields against further damage, the principal added.

The application is blended with existing technology which would serve farmer. A Raghavendra Rao, President of A Shama Rao Foundation and A Srinivasa Rao, Vice-President congratulated and appreciated the efforts of the students in developing the app.
