Abstract: For decades, agriculture has been an essential food source. According to related statics, over 60% of the total earth population mainly depend on agriculture’s sources for their primary feed. Unfortunately, one of the disaster problems that affect badly on agriculture production is plant diseases. There are about 25% of agriculture production lost annually because of plant diseases. Late and Early Blight diseases are one of the most destructive diseases that infect potato crop. Although, the late and inaccurate detection of plant diseases increases the losing percentage for the crop. The main approach of our proposed system is to detect early the plant diseases to decrease the plant’s production losses by using a diagnosis and detection system based on the Convolution Neural Network (CNN). We used CNN to extract the diseases features from the input images of the supported training dataset for classification purposes. For model training, 1700 of potato leaf images were used, then the testing process is done by using approximately 300 images and 100 images for fine tuning and parameters calibration against any biased data. Our proposed CNN architecture archives 98.2% accuracy, which is higher compared with other approaches run on the same dataset.
