Around 7.5 billion people worldwide depend on agriculture production for their livelihood, making it an essential component in keeping life alive on the planet. Negative impacts are being caused on the agroecosystem due to the rapid increase in the use of chemicals to combat plant diseases. These chemicals include fungicides, bactericides, and insecticides. Both the quantity and quality of the output are impacted when there is a high-scale prevalence of diseases in crops. Plant diseases provide a significant obstacle for the agricultural industry, which has a negative impact on the growth of plants and the output of crops. The problem of early detection and diagnosis of diseases can be solved for the benefit of the farming community by employing a method that is both quick and reliable regularly. This article proposes a model for the detection and diagnosis of leaf infection called the Automatic Optimal Monarch AntLion Recurrent Learning (MALRL) model, which attains a greater authenticity. The design of a hybrid version of the Monarch Butter Fly optimization algorithm and the AntLion Optimization Algorithm is incorporated into the MALRL technique that has been proposed. In the leaf image, it is used to determine acceptable aspects of impacted regions. After that, the optimal characteristics are used to aid the Long Short Term Neural Network (LSTM) classifier to speed up the process of lung disease categorization. The experiment's findings are analyzed and compared to those of ANN, CNN, and DNN. The proposed method was successful in achieving a high level of accuracy when detecting leaf disease for images of healthy leaves in comparison to other conventional methods.
