Agriculture plays a very important role in strengthening the economy of a country. Disease in plants is the major
cause of production and economy loss which also reduced the quality and quantity of agriculture products. Farmers
face a lot of difficulty in detecting the diseases with naked eye which is the traditional and most used way. It is
an important and tedious task to detect disease on crops. It requires a lot of skilled labour and huge amount of
time. This paper compares the benefits and limitations of existing techniques for disease detections. Finally, it
will talk about a method for disease detection in plants using convolutional neural network (CNN).
