    An Integrated Deep Learning Framework for Fruits Diseases Classification

    Abdul Majid1, Muhammad Attique Khan1, Majed Alhaisoni2, Muhammad Asfand E. yar3, Usman Tariq4, Nazar Hussain1, Yunyoung Nam5,*, Seifedine Kadry6 CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.71, No.1, pp. 1387-1402, 2022, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2022.017701
    Abstract Agriculture has been an important research area in the field of image processing for the last five years. Diseases affect the quality and quantity of fruits, thereby disrupting the economy of a country. Many computerized techniques have been introduced for detecting and recognizing fruit diseases. However, some issues remain to be addressed, such as irrelevant features and the dimensionality of feature vectors, which increase the computational time of the system. Herein, we propose an integrated deep learning framework for classifying fruit diseases. We consider seven types of fruits, i.e., apple, cherry, blueberry, grapes, peach, citrus, and strawberry. The proposed method… More >

    Shui-Hua Wang1, Muhammad Attique Khan2, Vishnuvarthanan Govindaraj3, Steven L. Fernandes4, Ziquan Zhu5, Yu-Dong Zhang6,* CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.70, No.2, pp. 2797-2813, 2022, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2022.020140
    Abstract (Aim) To make a more accurate and precise COVID-19 diagnosis system, this study proposed a novel deep rank-based average pooling network (DRAPNet) model, i.e., deep rank-based average pooling network, for COVID-19 recognition. (Methods) 521 subjects yield 1164 slice images via the slice level selection method. All the 1164 slice images comprise four categories: COVID-19 positive; community-acquired pneumonia; second pulmonary tuberculosis; and healthy control. Our method firstly introduced an improved multiple-way data augmentation. Secondly, an n-conv rank-based average pooling module (NRAPM) was proposed in which rank-based pooling—particularly, rank-based average pooling (RAP)—was employed to avoid overfitting. Third, a novel DRAPNet was proposed… More >

    Multiclass Cucumber Leaf Diseases Recognition Using Best Feature Selection

    Nazar Hussain1, Muhammad Attique Khan1, Usman Tariq2, Seifedine Kadry3,*, MuhammadAsfand E. Yar4, Almetwally M. Mostafa5, Abeer Ali Alnuaim6, Shafiq Ahmad7 CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.70, No.2, pp. 3281-3294, 2022, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2022.019036
    Abstract Agriculture is an important research area in the field of visual recognition by computers. Plant diseases affect the quality and yields of agriculture. Early-stage identification of crop disease decreases financial losses and positively impacts crop quality. The manual identification of crop diseases, which are mostly visible on leaves, is a very time-consuming and costly process. In this work, we propose a new framework for the recognition of cucumber leaf diseases. The proposed framework is based on deep learning and involves the fusion and selection of the best features. In the feature extraction phase, VGG (Visual Geometry Group) and Inception V3… More >

    Image Segmentation Based on Block Level and Hybrid Directional Local Extrema

    Ghanshyam Raghuwanshi1, Yogesh Gupta2, Deepak Sinwar1, Dilbag Singh3, Usman Tariq4, Muhammad Attique5, Kuntha Pin6, Yunyoung Nam7,* CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.70, No.2, pp. 3939-3954, 2022, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2022.018423
    Abstract In the recent decade, the digitalization of various tasks has added great flexibility to human lifestyle and has changed daily routine activities of communities. Image segmentation is a key step in digitalization. Segmentation plays a key role in almost all areas of image processing, and various approaches have been proposed for image segmentation. In this paper, a novel approach is proposed for image segmentation using a nonuniform adaptive strategy. Region-based image segmentation along with a directional binary pattern generated a better segmented image. An adaptive mask of 8 × 8 was circulated over the pixels whose bit value was 1 in the… More >

    A Cascaded Design of Best Features Selection for Fruit Diseases Recognition

    Faiz Ali Shah1, Muhammad Attique Khan2, Muhammad Sharif1, Usman Tariq3, Aimal Khan4, Seifedine Kadry5, Orawit Thinnukool6,* CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.70, No.1, pp. 1491-1507, 2022, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2022.019490
    Abstract Fruit diseases seriously affect the production of the agricultural sector, which builds financial pressure on the country's economy. The manual inspection of fruit diseases is a chaotic process that is both time and cost-consuming since it involves an accurate manual inspection by an expert. Hence, it is essential that an automated computerised approach is developed to recognise fruit diseases based on leaf images. According to the literature, many automated methods have been developed for the recognition of fruit diseases at the early stage. However, these techniques still face some challenges, such as the similar symptoms of different fruit diseases and… More >

    Classification of Citrus Plant Diseases Using Deep Transfer Learning

    Muhammad Zia Ur Rehman1, Fawad Ahmed1, Muhammad Attique Khan2, Usman Tariq3, Sajjad Shaukat Jamal4, Jawad Ahmad5,*, Iqtadar Hussain6 CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.70, No.1, pp. 1401-1417, 2022, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2022.019046
    Abstract In recent years, the field of deep learning has played an important role towards automatic detection and classification of diseases in vegetables and fruits. This in turn has helped in improving the quality and production of vegetables and fruits. Citrus fruits are well known for their taste and nutritional values. They are one of the natural and well known sources of vitamin C and planted worldwide. There are several diseases which severely affect the quality and yield of citrus fruits. In this paper, a new deep learning based technique is proposed for citrus disease classification. Two different pre-trained deep learning… More >

    Abstract As they have nutritional, therapeutic, so values, plants were regarded as important and they’re the main source of humankind’s energy supply. Plant pathogens will affect its leaves at a certain time during crop cultivation, leading to substantial harm to crop productivity & economic selling price. In the agriculture industry, the identification of fungal diseases plays a vital role. However, it requires immense labor, greater planning time, and extensive knowledge of plant pathogens. Computerized approaches are developed and tested by different researchers to classify plant disease identification, and that in many cases they have also had important results several times.

    Abstract Globally, Pakistan ranks 4 in cotton production, 6 as an importer of raw cotton, and 3 in cotton consumption. Nearly 10% of GDP and 55% of the country's foreign exchange earnings depend on cotton products. Approximately 1.5 million people in Pakistan are engaged in the cotton value chain. However, several diseases such as Mildew, Leaf Spot, and Soreshine affect cotton production. Manual diagnosis is not a good solution due to several factors such as high cost and unavailability of an expert. Therefore, it is essential to develop an automated technique that can accurately detect and recognize these diseases at their… More >

    Mango Leaf Disease Identification Using Fully Resolution Convolutional Network

    Rabia Saleem1, Jamal Hussain Shah1,*, Muhammad Sharif1, Ghulam Jillani Ansari2 CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.69, No.3, pp. 3581-3601, 2021, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2021.017700
    Abstract Due to the high demand for mango and being the king of all fruits, it is the need of the hour to curb its diseases to fetch high returns. Automatic leaf disease segmentation and identification are still a challenge due to variations in symptoms. Accurate segmentation of the disease is the key prerequisite for any computer-aided system to recognize the diseases, i.e., Anthracnose, apical-necrosis, etc., of a mango plant leaf. To solve this issue, we proposed a CNN based Fully-convolutional-network (FrCNnet) model for the segmentation of the diseased part of the mango leaf. The proposed FrCNnet directly learns the features… More >
