The present paper deals with the development of web based expert systems using machine learning techniques to advice the farmers in villages through online. An expert system is a computer program, with a set of rules encapsulating knowledge about a particular problem domain. In the present paper Ant Colony Optimization algorithm has been taken and this algorithm mainly focuses on finding the diseases affected to the Lady Finger plants. At First, the symptoms provided by the user are processed by a rule based expert system, If the rules required for processing the data by the above are not present in the database, then the system automatically calls the machine learning algorithm technique. As a whole, the system results global solution for recognizing the diseases in Lady Finger plants, and corresponding treatments to the diseases may also be suggested to the users. This expert system is a web based online application for online users with java as front end and MySQL as backend.
