This paper provides survey on plant leaf disease detection technique by using image processing. Plants plays vital role in humans life, they fulfils our daily needs from food to breathing, It is our duty to take care of plants. India is an agricultural country and about 70% people are depending on agricultural. Plant disease detection is emerging field in India as agriculture is important sector that affects the economy and social life, so leaf disease detection is very important research topic. Most of the diseases on plants are caused by fungi, bacteria, and viruses. Due to the diseases on plant the quality and quantity of agriculture product is reduced. To detect the disease on plants there is need of experts but it is very costly procedure and time consuming too. To reduce the cost and for the better results we are using the automation techniques, which will be very helpful in detecting the disease at early stage. The paper discusses an automatic disease detection technique using soft computing.

Important Announcements

All the authors, conference coordinators, conveners, and guest editors kindly check their articles' originality before submitting them to IJCERT. If any material is found to be duplicate submission or sent to other journals when the content is in the process with IJCERT, fabricated data, cut and paste (plagiarized), at any stage of processing of material, IJCERT is bound to take the following actions.
1. Rejection of the article.
2. The author will be blocked for future communication with IJCERT if duplicate articles are submitted.
3. A letter regarding this will be posted to the Principal/Director of the Institution where the study was conducted.
4. A List of blacklisted authors will be shared among the Chief Editors of other prestigious Journals
We have been screening articles for plagiarism with a world-renowned tool: Turnitin However, it is only rejected if found plagiarized. This more stern action is being taken because of the illegal behavior of a handful of authors who have been involved in ethical misconduct. The Screening and making a decision on such articles costs colossal time and resources for the journal. It directly delays the process of genuine materials.
