Web-based System to advise farmers on fertilizers
A web-based system has been developed by the Indian Institute of Soil Science that will suggest farmers the right quantity of fertilizers they should use in their soils for a particular type of crop.
How does the system work?
The software considers the soil type in different districts of the country and available nutrient in the soil. It also takes into account the crop and cropping season in estimating the nutrient requirement. Finally, the system converts the nutrient data into the quantities of main fertilizers-urea, MOP and SSP that are required to be used by the farmer.
