In recent years, with the development of machine learning and deep learning, it is possible to identify and even control crop diseases by using electronic devices instead of manual observation. In this paper, an image recognition method of citrus diseases based on deep learning is proposed. We built a citrus image dataset including six common citrus diseases. The deep learning network is used to train and learn these images, which can effectively identify and classify crop diseases. In the experiment, we use MobileNetV2 model as the primary network and compare it with other network models in the aspect of speed, model size, accuracy. Results show that our method reduces the prediction time consumption and model size while keeping a good classification accuracy. Finally, we discuss the significance of using MobileNetV2 to identify and classify agricultural diseases in mobile terminal, and put forward relevant suggestions.
