Buntata is an Android application that has been designed to help users identify plant pests and diseases with no a-priori knowledge. Buntata provides a visual key for the identification of diseases by displaying example images of symptoms. A user visually selects the part of the plant that is affected and Buntata displays images of recorded symptoms. Picking the image that most closely resembles the symptoms shows detailed information about possible causes, background information, diagnostics and control methods to help deal with the cause. Diseases can exhibit similar symptoms. Buntata displays diseases with similar symptoms together allowing easy comparison to help users identify the correct one.
