Diseases in fruit cause devastating problem in economic losses and production in agricultural industry worldwide. In this paper, a solution for the detection and classification of apple fruit diseases is proposed and experimentally validated. The image processing based proposed approach is composed of the following main steps, in the first step K-Means clustering technique is used for the image segmentation, in the second step some state of the art features are extracted from the segmented image, and finally images are classified into one of the classes by using a Multi-class Support Vector Machine. Our experimental results express that the proposed solution can significantly support accurate detection and automatic classification of apple fruit diseases. The classification accuracy for the proposed solution is achieved up to 93%.
