Abstract: Agriculture is the main occupation undertaken by majority of population in India. The Indian farmers produce food grains for entire population. Growing population needs constant increase in quantity and quality of agriculture produce. This is possible only by adopting improved technology in production and plant protection. Hence, technology intervention is at every stage of production and food processing is needed. Timely and suitable plant protection measures directly improve quantity and quality of agriculture produce. Effective result oriented plant protection mainly involves early detection of pest and diseases and suitable control measures. The entire human population consume products of food grains like cereals and millets as their staple food. This paper aims at summarizing common image processing methods to identify plant diseases and how it could be improved using nature inspired algorithm.
