Implementation of RGB and Grayscale Images in Plant Leaves Disease Detection – Comparative Study


Background/Objectives: Digital image processing is used various fields for analyzing different applications such as medical sciences, biological sciences. Various image types have been used to detect plant diseases. This work is analyzed and compared two types of images such as Grayscale, RGB images and the comparative result is given. Methods/Statistical Analysis: We examined and analyzed the Grayscale and RGB images using image techniques such as pre processing, segmentation, clustering for detecting leaves diseases, Results/Finding: In detecting the infected leaves, color becomes an important feature to identify the disease intensity. We have considered Grayscale and RGB images and used median filter for image enhancement and segmentation for extraction of the diseased portion which are used to identify the disease level. Conclusion: RGB image has given better clarity and noise free image which is suitable for infected leaf detection than Grayscale image.
