Grape field is greatly affected by Downey mildew disease. The development of the disease is faster, within six hour the spread of the disease get multiplied by twice. Once it is affected it will diminish the quantity & quality of Grapes, it reduce the Photosynthesis process. For this, disease detection is an important part. By using detection technique we can prevent the disease. Detection & control strategies are carried over in order to control Downey mildew disease. The electromechanical system we have used. In this system we have used Raspberry pi module for disease detection. The raspberry pi is the module which has image processing capabilities. Traditionally farmer visually checks the disease. If disease is there, he applies pesticide spray manually. In our system disease is detected by raspberry pi module, which is installed on the robo car. As soon as disease is detected, detected signal is transmitted to another electromechanical module. Then pesticide is sprayed automatically on infected area by using electromechanical system. The farmers need not to go in the farm to check each leaf. Prevention is always better than cure. Instead of waiting for disease development, we can prevent this disease on Grape field. If disease is prevented then Export quality grapes can be produced & Farmer can have more profit from Grape production.
