As a major sector, agriculture continues to be the life line for millions of farmers in Madhya Pradesh, India. A computer programme has been developed in order to aid decision making in tractor and implement selection for the small farm in Central region. The application of decision support system was demonstrated in the paper to select tractor power. The selection of tractor power in the study area. Through model a linear relationship was found between the optimum PTO power of tractor selected and the farm size. The unit power requirement followed an inverse relationship with the farm size. Initially it decreased rapidly from 1 to 5 ha of farm size and thereafter it tended to be asymptotic with the farm size. The programme able to handle a wide range of tractor and working condition because of its datafiles structure.
