Location Based Suitability
Productivity of land can be determined by environmental components such as Climate, Topography (Roughness, Steepness, And Exposure), Soil Type, and Existing Vegetation Pattern. Improper Land Use results in Land Degradation and a decline in Agricultural Productivity. Crop‐Land Suitability Analysis is a prerequisite for optimum utilization of the available Land Resources for sustainable agricultural production.
Land Evaluation and Crop Suitability Analysis using GIS analysis and Remote Sensing will resolve these issues by providing better land‐use options to the farmers. Land Evaluation is conducted to determine limiting factors for particular crop production.
The platform can guide optimal water use, Fertilizer recommendations, and generate lists of certified fertilizers available based on the specific crop. Using well-timed, appropriate pesticide sprays against diseases and insect and pest attacks – and with the licensed product and dose – will protect the crop health. This maximizes Food Security while minimizing the environmental impact and risks of developing Pesticide Resistance.
This application creates enormous potential for crop diversification and precision for enhanced crop productivity. That includes Land Characteristics, Topography, Land Use, Soil, and Water Analyses, Weather and Climate, Yield, and Profitability which can lead to making recommendations towards “What” should be grown, “Where,” and “When.”
The decision criteria for the practical suitability of growing crops depend on revenue generation. The production and payback costs analysis helps decide which crop to grow in a particular Agro-Ecological Zone.
