What is Plant Disease?

Plant disease is an impairment of the normal state of a plant that interrupts or modifies its vital functions. All species of plants, wild and cultivated alike, are subject to disease. Although each species is susceptible to characteristic diseases, these are, in each case, relatively few in number. The occurrence and prevalence of plant diseases vary from season to season, depending on the presence of the pathogen, environmental conditions, and the crops and varieties grown. Some plant varieties are particularly subject to outbreaks of diseases while others are more resistant to them.

The use of traditional ground-based survey method requires high labor cost, besides being time-consuming, and produces low efficiency. That’s why Neos Core Ltd offers an E-service to monitor crop disease on the field using satellite images.

Importance to monitor Plant Disease:

  1. Plant diseases are responsible for major economic losses in the agricultural industry worldwide
  2. Monitoring plant health and detecting pathogen early are essential to reduce disease spread and facilitate effective management practices.
  3. Automatic detection technique is used as it will take less efforts, less time and become more accurate to monitor plant disease.
  4. To measure affected area of disease and to determine the difference in the color of the affected area.
  5. To develop methods that can assess the spatial spread of diseases and pests in crop fields is therefore critical in spray application and decision making.
  6. To detect pest and disease damage at different stages, that is early, moderate and severe stages.

Neos Core Ltd provides an E-service for the detection of disease on the fields for the following purpose: 

  • To monitor the health of crop leaf in order to see changes in leaf chlorophyll.
  • To provide a plant disease recognition system operating as a universal detector, recognizing general abnormalities on the leaves, such as scorching or mold.
  • To provide digital photographic images are as a tool in plant pathology for assessing plant health.
  • To indicate the affected area on the field using a simple source of RGB (red, green, and blue) digital images for disease detection, identification, and quantification
