Object Detection


The PlantDoc dataset was originally published by researchers at the Indian Institute of Technology, and described in depth in their paper. One of the paper’s authors, Pratik Kayal, shared the object detection dataset available on GitHub.

PlantDoc is a dataset of 2,569 images across 13 plant species and 30 classes (diseased and healthy) for image classification and object detection. There are 8,851 labels. Read more about how the version available on Roboflow improves on the original version here.

And here's an example image:

Tomato Blight

Fork this dataset (upper right hand corner) to receive the raw images, or (to save space) grab the 416x416 export.

Use Cases

As the researchers from IIT stated in their paper, “plant diseases alone cost the global economy around US$220 billion annually.” Training models to recognize plant diseases earlier dramatically increases yield potential.

The dataset also serves as a useful open dataset for benchmarks. The researchers trained both object detection models like MobileNet and Faster-RCNN and image classification models like VGG16, InceptionV3, and InceptionResnet V2.

The dataset is useful for advancing general agriculture computer vision tasks, whether that be health crop classification, plant disease classification, or plant disease objection.
