Life of human being and animals depend on the environment which is surrounded by plants. Like human beings, plants also suffer from lot of diseases. Plant gets affected by completely including leaf, stem, root, fruit and flower; this affects the normal growth of the plant. Manual identification and diagnosis of plant diseases is very difficult. This method is costly as well as time-consuming so it is inefficient to be highly specific. Plant pathology deals with the progress in developing classification of plant diseases and their identification. This work clarifies the identification of plant diseases using leaf images caused by bacteria, viruses and fungus. By this method it can be identified and control the diseases. To identify the plant leaf disease Adaptive Neuro Fuzzy Inference System (ANFIS) was proposed. The proposed method shows more refined results than the existing works.
