Crops, including corn, are important agricultural commodities and contribute greatly to people's food needs. Diseases in crops are often the main factor that reduces crop production and quality. Maize plants are particularly susceptible to various pests and diseases, such as Leaf Blight, Leaf Spot, Rust, Stem Blight, Anthracnose, Root Rot, Cob Rot, Smut, Mosaic Virus, and Nematodes. Unfortunately, farmers often use pesticides or inappropriate control methods, resulting in suboptimal care and the emergence of new pests or diseases. This study aims to assist farmers in detecting early symptoms of pests and diseases in corn plants, so that control can be more precise and effective. In this study, 10 disease attack data were processed using the Dempster Shafer method. This method processes data based on symptoms seen in corn plants, allowing detection of types of pests and diseases and recommendations for handling them with an accuracy rate of about 80%. Therefore, the Dempster Shafer method is relevant for use in the identification of diseases in corn plants.
