Approaches for Promotion and Dissemination of Plant Protection Strategies in the Major Horticultural Crops through Information and Communication Tool-A Big Forward
The world is experiencing rapid agricultural development especially in developed countries. This is synonymous with the fast rate at which such countries have adopted Information and Communication Technology (ICT) tools, into their agricultural process. Since ICT has reduced the globe to a village, it has enjoyed full acceptance in every nook and corners of human activities. As Integrated Pest Management (IPM)has taken its own share of computerization in almost all the processes like farm recording, soil survey/sampling, measurement, information dissemination, diagnosis and management of pest-diseases, forecasting and so many others has adopted ICT in one way or the other 9. This paper focuses on the Decision Support System (DSS) developed for Mango crop for Uttar Pradesh, India for the management of various pests and diseases and increasing the production and productivity. As ICT tools are the need of hour and focuses on providing the accurate and timely information to the farmers as well as the extension workers, when there is no other source of help is available for addressing critical issues in mango crop production process.
