One of the important sectors of Indian Economy is Agriculture. Employment to almost 50% of the countries workforce is provided by Indian agriculture sector. India is known to be the world’s largest producer of pulses, rice, wheat, spices and spice products. Therefore, in field of agriculture, detection of disease in plants plays an instrumental role. Plants are highly prone to diseases that affect the growth of the plant, which in turn affects the ecology of the farmer. In order to detect a plant disease at initial stage, use of automatic disease detection technique is advantageous.
