Computational Approaches Based On Image Processing for Automated Disease Identification On Chili Leaf Images: A Review
Keywords:Chili disease, chili leaf, computational approaches, image processing
Chili, an important crop whose fruit is used as a spice, is significantly hampered by the existence of chili diseases. While these diseases pose a significant concern to farmers since they impair the supply of spices to the market, they can be managed and monitored to lessen their impact. Therefore, identifying chili diseases using a pertinent approach is of enormous importance. Over the years, the growth of computational approaches based on image processing has found its application in automated disease identification, leading to the availability of a reliable monitoring tool that produces promising findings for the chili. Numerous research papers on identifying chili diseases using the approaches have been published. Still, to the best knowledge of the author, there has not been a proper attempt to analyze these papers to describe the many steps of diagnosis, including pre-processing, segmentation, extraction of features, as well as identification techniques. Thus, a total of 50 research paper publications on the identification of chili diseases, with publication dates spanning from 2013 to 2021, are reviewed in this paper. Through the findings in this paper, it becomes feasible to comprehend the development trend for the application of computational approaches based on image processing in the identification of chili diseases, as well as the challenges and future directions that require attention from the present research community.
