Medicinal plants are an essential source of medicinal chemicals used in both conventional and alternative medicine. The pharmaceutical and healthcare sectors must guarantee their optimum development and well-being. In this study, we explore the potentially useful application of one-shot learning approaches for the diagnosis of illnesses and nutrient deficiencies in medicinal plants, offering a practical and economical approach to plant health management.
