Agriculture is extremely important in human life. Almost 60% of the population is engaged in some kind of agriculture, either directly or indirectly. There are no technologies in the traditional system to detect diseases in various crops in an agricultural environment, which is why farmers are not interested in increasing their agricultural productivity day by day. Crop diseases have an impact on the growth of their respective species, so early detection is critical. Many Machine Learning (ML) models have been used to detect and classify crop diseases, but with recent advances in a subset of ML, Deep Learning (DL), this area of research appears to have a lot of promise in terms of improved accuracy. The proposed method uses a convolutional neural network and a Deep Neural Network to identify and recognise crop disease symptoms effectively and accurately. Furthermore, multiple efficiency metrics are used to assess these strategies. This article offers a thorough description of the DL models that are used to visualise crop diseases. Furthermore, several research gaps are identified from which greater transparency for detecting diseases in plants can be obtained, even before symptoms occur. The proposed methodology aims to develop a convolution neural network-based strategy for detecting plant leaf disease.
