Research project (Max 200 words): Wastage of agricultural yield is almost 40 % due to lack of field monitoring, non-identified like disease. To optimize agricultural production, it is important to early detect plants diseases and apply adequate treatment to them. The question of precision agriculture should start with the most used agricultural products. Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) is one of the most consumed vegetable in the world. In Benin, it is one of the most economically important vegetable crops and its production represents more than 51% of the total production of vegetable crops. For my Ph.D. research, I am working on artificial intelligence methods optimization to improve tomato yield by early detection of its diseases.
