In the task of identification of infected agriculture plants, the leaf-based disease identification technique is especially effective in better understand crop disease among various techniques to detect infection. Recognition of an infected leaf image from healthy images gets encumbered when the model is required to detect the type of leaf disease. This paper presents a BAT-based crop disease prediction bootstrap model (BCDPBM) that identifies the health of the leaf and performs disease prediction. The BAT algorithm in the proposed model increases the capability of the Gaussian mixture model for foreground region detection. Furthermore, in the work, the co-occurrence matrix feature and histogram feature are extracted for the training of the bootstrap model. Hence, leaf foreground detection by the BAT algorithm with the Gaussian mixture improves the feature extraction quality for bootstrap learning. The proposed model utilizes a dataset of real leaf images for conducting experiments. The results of the model are compared with different existing models across various parameters. The results show the prediction accuracy enhancement of multiclass leaf disease using the BCDPBM model.
