The K-means algorithm is one of the most effective clustering methods that has been widely used in plant disease detection. Herein, we developed a script termed K-PIE (K-means algorithm for Percentage Infection symptoms Estimation) that utilises the k-means algorithm to analyse images of both yellow and stem rust infected wheat leaves to estimate the percentage of disease symptoms based on colour analysis.
