The prime concern of any country is Agriculture. Every nation has to feed its population by making strong policy support for Agricultural production. This paper deals with providing decision support for the crop to be selected for cultivation based on several influencing parameters. Even though there are many decision support systems available for Agriculture, there is a lack in region specific ones. The proposed system aims to overcome the aforementioned issue. For this purpose, the system considers climatic data from the Government of India web portal, Tamil Nadu Agricultural University portal and reports. The precision data collected from the fields will be given as inputs to the proposed system. The crops to be selected for cultivation are based on the historical data and guidelines from the Tamil Nadu Agritech portal. The accuracy of the proposed decision support system is assessed by getting feedback from the farmers.

Abstract


The prime concern of any country is Agriculture. Every nation has to feed its population by making strong policy support for Agricultural production. This paper deals with providing decision support for the crop to be selected for cultivation based on several influencing parameters. Even though there are many decision support systems available for Agriculture, there is a lack in region specific ones. The proposed system aims to overcome the aforementioned issue. For this purpose, the system considers climatic data from the Government of India web portal, Tamil Nadu Agricultural University portal and reports. The precision data collected from the fields will be given as inputs to the proposed system. The crops to be selected for cultivation are based on the historical data and guidelines from the Tamil Nadu Agritech portal. The accuracy of the proposed decision support system is assessed by getting feedback from the farmers.
