Agrio is a free Android app to identify plant diseases by taking photo of plant. This app allows you to easily know about the diseases your plants have and treat them for the same. You can simply take a photo using the app’s camera and then it will use artificial intelligence (AI) to automatically analyze and identify the disease hosted on your plants. Apart from showing the name of the disease, it will also show the confidence level of disease accuracy, plants with similar disease, etc. to make you confirm that the identified disease is indeed correct.
It can find disease on different crops including Papaya, Avocado, Apple, Roses, Soy, Corn, Olives, and much more. When you upload a plant photo, it can actually automatically detect the crop just like the plant identifier apps. In addition to all that, it also shows various information about the disease like the virus name, class, control measures, and more.
How to Identify Plant Diseases by Taking Photo of Plant using Agrio:
To get started, the first thing you would need to do is open the app on your phone and sign up for an account. After you do that, select the “Upload Image” tab at the bottom. When you do that, you can see a “Camera” icon which you need to tap to proceed. Now, the built-in camera will open up and you can take the photo of the plant highlighting the disease either on the fruit or leaf.
It also lets you import existing plant photos from the phone gallery. Once you’re done taking or importing a photo, it will ask you to enable the option to add weather and your location such that it can find the best result for you. Then tap on the “Upload” button to start uploading the photo for analysis. When the photo is uploaded, you can add more photos of different leaves or fruits such that it can identify the disease more accurately.
As soon as you’re all set with uploading photos of the plant, it will open up a new screen where you would need to select the crop. By default, this app can select it for you but if it is wrong then you can manually select. There are various crops available for which it can identify the diseases. Some of the crops are Papaya, Citrus, Pepper, Bean, Tomato, Basil, Pumpkin, Mango, and more. If you don’t find the crop, then it also gives you an option to enter the name of the crop and send it to the developers to add.
When you’ve selected the crop, it will start analyzing the plant photo and automatically identify the disease or pest for you using artificial intelligence. It will also show you the confidence level of the result in percentage. For example, I have taken a photo of a Papaya plant with the Ring Spot disease. And as you can see in the below image that it was able to accurately identify the disease/virus. It also shows that the confidence level is 78% percent for the accuracy of the identified disease.
To make you confirm the disease, it also shows pictures of some plants with the similar disease so that you can compare them with the photo you have taken. At the bottom, you will also see an “Open information page” link which you can click to learn about the disease and how to treat it. In the information page, you will see the disease or virus description, class, common name, potential hosts, and the control measures.
If the app detects that the plant has no disease then it will simply say that it is healthy. And if it couldn’t identify the plant or disease, then it will say that it does not have enough information about the crop and will add the information in future.
This is how you can now easily identify plant diseases or pests by simply taking a photo of it. This AI-based Android app makes it very easy for you to find diseases in plants and treat them accordingly. What makes this app more useful is the fact that it shows additional photos for you to confirm the disease and also control measures. So, if you have plants at your home or anywhere with diseases, then use this app to identify them and cure them.
