III .Proposed Methodology

The proposed work is basically a design of
framework with two modules:
1. Input Image Processing :- (Training Phase )
2. Pattern Classification :- (Testing phase)
1. Training Phase
In training phase following algorithms are used to
create database of infected patterns.
1.1 Algorithm for Create database adaptively
Input: Infected image
Output: Save infected patterns in database
Step 1: Take input as an infected image.
Step 2: Enhance that image.
Step 3: Pre-processing to enhance image.
Step 4: Locate infected patterns.
Step 5: Crop the located pattern and save to database.
Step 6: Stop.

1.1.1 Image Enhancement Algorithm

Input : Infected image
Output: Filter image
Step 1: Take input as an infected image.
Step 2: Find RGB component.
Step 3: Convert RGB image into gray scale image.
Step 4: Remove noise by applying filter.
Step 5: Get filtered image.

1.1.2 Image Pre-processing Algorithm

Input : Filter image
Output: Save infected patterns
Step 1: Take input as filter image.
Step 2: Read all pixel of an image.
Step 3: Set pixels value in a range of 0 to 10 and 245
to 255 to 0(Black) remaining pixel to
Step 4: Locate region in enhance image.
Step 5: Crop infected patterns.
Step 6: Save infected patterns into database.
Step 7: Stop.

PSNR stands for peak signal to noise ratio. It
used to measure the quality of images. Higher the
PSNR value, better the quality of image. It is
estimated in decibels (db). Fig 7:- blackspot.jpg
PSNR = 10.log10 ( MAX2I /MSE )

MSE stands for the mean square error. Lower the

value of MSE, better the quality of image. It is defined

Here m and n represents the no. of rows and columns
of the image respectively. I𝑖𝑗 is the original image and
