AI Crop Analytics Tool

A machine learning and data analytics tool built on documented image patterns and features of crop diseases to diagnose pest-prone and unhealthy crops with just a photo. The AI tool comprises of a user-friendly interface that allows users to take pictures of their crops, without the need for an internet connection. With a single picture, the machine learning algorithmic model, trained on thousands of images of both healthy and infected crops, compares the input loaded by the user with the database, matching both data sources to detect diseases at early stages.
Once the tool identifies potential plant diseases, it provides extensive audio and text recommendations in multiple local dialects to guide farmers on the best practices to protect and save the yields. It provides farmers with fine details to predict whether a crop is healthy or affected before the human eye notices it. Also, the tool incorporates 3D scientific animations that assist farmers to tackle pest infestations and illustrate sustainable practices. Current developments also include features such as crop rotation and selection, as well as yield prediction.
