Convolutional neural networks (CNN) trained using deep learning (DL) have advanced dramatically in recent years. Researchers from a variety of fields have been motivated by the success of CNNs in computer vision to develop better CNN models for use in other visually-rich settings. Successes in image classification and research have been achieved in a wide variety of domains throughout the past year. Among the many popularized image classification techniques, the detection of plant leaf diseases has received extensive research. As a result of the nature of the procedure, image quality is often degraded and distortions are introduced during the capturing of the image. In this study, we look into how various CNN models are affected by distortions. Corn-maze leaf photos from the 4,188-image corn or maize leaf Dataset (split into four categories) are under consideration. To evaluate how well they handle noise and blur, researchers have deployed pre-trained deep CNN models like visual geometry group (VGG), InceptionV3, ResNet50, and EfficientNetB0. Classification accuracy and metrics like as recall and f1-score are used to evaluate CNN performance.
