Abstract: India is the farmland with a population of three-fourths in agriculture. In accordance with the climate and other resources accessible to them, farmers will grow multiple plants in their field. But some technical abilities along with technological assistance are required to achieve high output and excellent quality. The management of food crops includes very close surveillance, particularly with regard to the treatment of Illnesses, which will cause severe effects after harvest. Disease is recognized in crops as the shift or deficiency of the plants ordinary functions that will generate certain symptoms. The disease that causes agents in plants is mainly defined as any agent’s pathogens Most of these pathogenic agents signs are seen in the leaves, stems and branches of the crops. Consequently, the diagnosis of disease and the proportion of disease produced in crops is compulsory for effective and successful plant cultivation. This can be done through taking input images using camera, analyzing them using machine learning process. This displays the disease presented on the leaf, stem or plant. This also displays the exposed area to disease and also predicts the remedies, turn on the pesticide sprayer which sprays the respective pesticide on the exposed area to disease. This is very necessary for effective spraying of the pesticide. The movement of robot is done with L293d motor driver and the processor or embedded system is done through Raspberry pi3. We use python code for machine learning which trains the robot with pre-defined images.Since this can be controlled from anywhere without working in the field and being exposed to pesticides, it will be a profit for the farmer. He will stay unaffected by his health condition.
