Abstract: - -Scab disease of potato tubers resulting in lowered tuber quality due to scab-like surface lesions. Potato is the most demanding vegetable of India to increase the productivity. In this paper proposes image processing methodology to detect scab disease of potato. In this paper first, the captured images are collected from different potato field and are processed for enhancement. Then image segmentation is carried out to get target regions (disease spots). Finally, analysis of the target regions (disease spots) based on histogram approach to finding the phase of the disease and then the treatment consultative module can be prepared by on the lookout for agricultural experts, so plateful the farmers.
