        Myanmar is well known for agricultural country; wherein about 65% of the labor force depends on agriculture. Since the leaf diseases are microscopic organism, cannot be detected normal human eyes. Leaves are special indicator to distinguish the diseases because the image information of the leaf are changed when the leaf surf the diseases. So, the image processing techniques can be used in agricultural sector. The research work presents a support vector machine classifier algorithm by using MATLAB R2017a for the classification of leaf diseases such as Alternaria Alternata, Cercospora leaf spot, Bacterial Blight and so on. In this research work, RGB color space is converted into HSI (Hue Saturation Intensity) color space. In segmentation step, k-means clustering is used to select the defected area, and it is extracted the features by using GLCM (Gray Level Co-occurrence Matrix). Prior to the features extraction, the median filter is used for getting noise free feature results. Finally, the leaf disease is classified by using support vector machine (SVM) and computes the accuracy. From the obtained results, the maximum accuracy of the system is 83%.
