Plant disease is one of many obstacles encountered in the field of agriculture. Machine learning models have been used to classify and detect diseases among plants by analyzing and extracting features from plant images. However, a common problem for many models is that they are trained on clean laboratory images and do not exemplify real conditions where noise can be present. In addition, the emergence of adversarial noise that can mislead models into wrong predictions poses a severe challenge to developing preserved models against noisy environments. In this paper, we propose an end-to-end robust plant disease detection framework that combines a DenseNet-based classification with a vigorous deep learning denoising model. We validate a variety of deep learning denoising models and adopt the Real Image Denoising network (RIDnet). The experiments have shown that the proposed denoising classification framework for plant disease detection is more robust against noisy or corrupted input images compared to a single classification model and can also successfully defend against adversarial noises in images.
