Modern agriculture has been fascinated by various advancements in agriculture and the processing of foods and supply management that provision farmers to improve production. The health of plants is essential to improve production and economic growth. Diseases in plants can affect production and create a rigorous impact on the quality and create a hazard to food safety. Hence, detecting and classifying plant leaf diseases is essential to prevent the disease spread across the plants in the agriculture field and to improve productivity. The researchers in existing frameworks utilized artificial intelligence and machine learning techniques to demonstrate noteworthy solutions. However, a few issues exist related to noises in the images, hyperparameter selection problems, and over-fitting problems that influence prediction accuracy. The proposed model jellyfish ResNet(JF-ResNet) works well to achieve a better accuracy level by incorporating jellyfish optimized ResNET for tomato plant leaf disease identification and classification. The performance metrics such as Accuracy, specificity, sensitivity, and F1-Score is used to evaluate the performance of the JF-ResNet model. The proposed model achieves 97.3% accuracy, 95.3% sensitivity, 96.1% specificity, 96.9% recall, 96.4% precision and 97.1% F1-Score.
