    • An attempt is proposed to be made to provide micro level farm planning using geospatial approaches for the State of Arunachal Pradesh.
    • The detailed land resource inventory needs to be arrived at for all potential arable land for the entire State. The fertility status also needs to be assessed using standard procedures for estimation of nutrients besides Soil and water resources are also to be assessed and mapped using Remote Sensing, GPS and GIS techniques.
    • Land suitability for major Agri/ Horti crops (field crops, commercial crops, offseason, spices, condiments, medical and aromatic plants etc) needs to be assessed and land capability classification also to be worked out.
    • The final management plan in terms of soil and water conservation measures (contour bunding, conservation furrow, inter bund management, farm pond, etc.), soil health management (suitable amendments for soil amelioration, fertilizer recommendation for crops based on soil test results) and crop planning (crops and suitable cropping systems with varieties for agriculture, horticulture and forest component and sowing time) needs to be provided for micro level planning by the implementing agency.
    • The adoption of management plan would enable in changing crops and cropping system based on scientific data and enhances productivity and livelihood security in agri. and allied sectors for the farmers.

    Moreover, all these information, data set and output of the project will be provided in digital (electronic format) and hard copy format for further use.

    The information obtained under this project can not only be used to develop Agricultural land use planning, but also can be used for developing land use policy for the State, assess the amount of erosion, its susceptibility and remedial measures, planning for forests and other types of land uses, impact of mining on the environment apart from climate change adversities and their remedial measures.

    • Soil and water are the most important natural resources required for crop production. Its inventory, characterization and suitability assessment for crops is essential for conserving these natural resources and enhance crop productivity.
