Plant leaf diseases are significant issue in agriculture field. Some of the common plant leaf diseases are powdery mildew, dark spot and rust. They are a noteworthy wellspring of an immense number of dollar worth of setbacks to farmers on a yearly premise. Plant breeders frequently need to screen countless number of plant leaves to find the stage of diseases of their crops to perform an early treatments. Therefore, a robust method for field screening is needed in order to spare the farmers and the environment as well. Inappropriate used of treatments such as impulsive pesticides can imperil the environment. Hence, this paper present a simple and efficient machine learning method which is Fuzzy C-Means algorithm to screen leaf disease severity in maize. Fuzzy C-Means is a new algorithm and very efficient to be used in object detection. Therefore, it is applicable to detect disease spot in plant leaf and measure the diseases severity. This field screening method help the farmer to identify the progression of the diseases in their crops quicker and easier than the other field screening techniques.
