Background and objectives
For this, we designed a software programme in FoxPro 2.5. The programme is capable of identifying nearly all diseases of various fruits like mango, apple, banana, citrus, avocado, grapes, melons, pineapple, stone fruits, strawberry, raspberry, passion fruit, kiwi fruit, guava, etc. Apart from providing options for symptom choice, the software also provides characters of the causal agents of the diseases. While this software can be used in computer assisted instructions as well as a valuable tool for research, its greater application is for the orchardists who would like to manage these diseases in the orchard and during packing.
