APPLICATIONS OF DECISION SUPPORT SYSTEM FOR AGROTECHNOLOGY TRANSFER IN PRESENT DAY AGRICULTURE

The Decision Support System for Agrotechnology Transfer (DSSAT) is an interactive, user-friendly, microcomputer-based software package designed to assist scientists, policymakers, and resource planners in rapidly accessing a natural resource data base, evaluating predicted outcomes, and prescribing solutions to site-specific problems. It is a powerful tool for enhancing the efficiency of agricultural research and assessing new agrotechnology packages in the rapidly changing and exacting environments in which farmers have to operate. The DSSAT, developed by a team of international scientists under the auspices of the IBSNAT Project, consists of a data base management system, crop simulation models for cereals and grain legumes, and application programs. Its application on agricultural, environmental, and global issues offers valuable assistance in decisionmaking and long-term strategic planning.
