Abstract

The downfall of agriculture is highly rampant in many developing countries such as Ethiopia, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Eritrea, India and others. This is so a great focus in our country’s strategic plan for contributing growth of economy. There are many issues to decline this potential field, viz. weather, shortage of rain, pollution and diseases. However, Enset crops in Ethiopia are attacked by numerous insect pests and diseases which have been one of the difficulties in the development of agricultural sector. To handle these problems, experienced farmers and domain experts should only use visual inspection for the diagnosis of such plant diseases in-place. This has defects due to lowering the accuracy rate when compare to soft computing approaches. This research dealt with an intelligent based image processing techniques for Enset disease diagnosis to examine the various Enset leaf diseases. In order to create the knowledge base system, a total of 570 sample Enset images for the three diseases including Enset bacterial wilt, Enset black sigatok and Enset panama wilt are employed and this real dataset was demonstrated using MatLab R2020b platform. In the first stage, the image of the Enset disease is subjected to image processing techniques. Particularly, the possibility distribution algorithm applied to enhance the contrast of inputted image, followed the Otsu method used to select region of interest and then features such as GLCM, color and shape are extracted. Next a comparative analysis was made using various machine learning algorithms to identify each class labels based on the trained patterns. The developed system can successfully identify the examined Enset diseases using ANN and Kernel RBF with an accuracy of 91.8% and 79.41% respectively.
