Insect Identifier

Believe it or not, there are quite a few plant and flower identification apps out there. I will tell you about the best ones. Rather, those that I consider the best for subjective reasons. Some of them are very similar in functionality, others are a little more distinctive. But every one is really good..

They will not only help you find out the name of a particular flower or plant, but also tell about it. In addition, I will introduce an insect detection app that is also a great service for gardeners. If you're curious, read on.

LeafSnap

An excellent application for identifying plants and flowers. Quite possibly one of the best of its kind on the Play Store. It harmoniously combines beautiful design and functionality..

Just take a photo of a particular flower, and LeafSnap will provide you with a hefty array of information about it after it finds it in its database. If you want, you can dig into this database yourself. The developers claim that their brainchild can accurately recognize 90 percent of all known flora.

Available for Android ..

PlantNet

PlantNet relies on human experts, not artificial intelligence. With it, you will begin to better understand the surrounding vegetation, and at the same time you will receive help. PlantNet currently recognizes about 20,000 species and the database is constantly expanding. Given that the planet is home to 360,000 species, there is room to grow. Although this can be said about almost all similar applications.

PlantNet can categorize flora by genus or family, but the multi-identification feature allows you to search the photographed plant across the entire application database, not just a selected section. Outwardly, everything is pretty pretty. The vast majority of menu items are docked in the bottom bar, no matter what screen you are on. Plus, PlantNet is free.

Available for Android .

PictureThis

Another great app with powerful AI (artificial intelligence). PictureThis can almost instantly recognize a plant, flower or weed, you just need to photograph it. Although you can manually search the database. Each representative of the flora is provided with a detailed description.

According to the developers, PictureThis identifies more than 10,000 plant species with 98% accuracy. The company even claims that their brainchild is more efficient than most human specialists. The app can also send tips from a community of crop experts, as well as provide tips for care, such as a reminder to water.

NatureID

NatureID developers have tried their best - everything works great. Here you can take a picture of a plant and the application will start looking for it in its database, and when it finds it, it will give out mountains of pictures and detailed descriptions.

You can add the options you want to the collection. With notifications, NatureID will also help you care for your flowers, so you don't forget to water and feed them on time. In addition, the application has an identifier for plant diseases, which will come in handy in case of trouble.

Agrobase

A great tool for farmers and agronomists. There is a wealth of information on agronomy and a vast database of pests, weeds and diseases. And also - data on all registered pesticides, insecticides and herbicides, you only need to correctly indicate the country. Agrobase will help you recognize diseases, insects and pests and protect your crops.

The database is updated all the time, so you will always be in the know. Weeds, pests, insects or diseases can be found by searching by their common and Latin names, category or crop. Agrobase's design is quite pleasant, the database is conveniently compiled and sorted into categories, so it is easy to navigate in it.

Available for Android .

FlowerChecker +

FlowerChecker + is a little different from all other AI-powered apps. Here you can also take a picture of the plant / flower in order to recognize it. But the bottom line is that, unlike the counterparts mentioned above, FlowerChecker + will send the snapshot to human experts. Usually, it takes them from several minutes to several hours to answer, depending on the time of day and the complexity of the question.

The company claims that, on average, a solution is found more than 95% of the time. Basically, the team can help you solve any plant-related issues, whether you just want to broaden your horizons, or find out why your plant is sick and how to help it. Please note that the app costs 69 rubles. Just keep in mind that one payment gives you the opportunity to make three consultations. If you need more, you will have to pay again.

Plantix

If you want to grow something on your own, Plantix will come in handy. The main purpose of the app is to help you get a healthy harvest. Here you will find information on 30 major crops and more than 400 damage. All you have to do is take a photo of a sick crop, and then - the wonders of high technology. In general, this is a kind of doctor for your crops.

The content is translated into 18 languages, which is rare. Plantix also has a large farming community with over 500 experts. Feel free to ask any questions. In addition, the app contains tips for crop production and an agronomic weather forecast .

Available for Android .

Insect Identifier

I already mentioned Insect Identifier in passing at the beginning of the article. It identifies insects and thus helps to know which of them harm the plants and which do not. Just take a photo of the pest, and the application will find mountains of information about each insect, and at the same time many of its photos.

The developers note that information for their machine learning algorithm is taken only from reputable professionals. The company also notes that the database is constantly updated with new information. Insect Identifier also allows you to keep a diary of caught insects. True, you will have to pay 399 rubles for the application.
