Abstract

For ages, agriculture has always had a very special place in the lifestyle of an Indian. Agriculture and its associated activities contribute about 15% of Indian gross domestic products. However, in spite of all the development, the agricultural methods that Indians use are still way old. Soil fertility is the major factor to be looked for getting better yield. Major constrain in promoting balanced use of fertilizers includes inadequate soil testing facilities, wide gap in dissemination of knowledge, lack of awareness among farmers about benefits of balanced fertilization. This paper discusses how Information and communication Technology can be used to promote balance used of fertilizers in Indian farming condition
