Andrea_Jimenez's picture

Abstract: Mobile devices are used extensively by the people for communication, music, entertainment, Internet and social networking. There is a lack of applications, which can be really useful for the professionals to improve their working capabilities. Though mobile phones are used by people living in rural areas, but there are hardly any relevant applications for them to improve their productivity. In this paper, authors propose and implement an information system for farmers which can be operated on their mobile phones. The system is developed using Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) to process spatial data and knowledge base. 

This system is an effort to fill the gap between farmers and agricultural experts. A farmer can provide inputs related to crops being cultivated and location specific information to get specific suggestions, alerts and recommendations to improve productivity.
