Applications of remote sensing and GIS in fruit crops: A review

Shreesty Pal, Dr. SK Pandey and Dr. SK Sharma
Fruit crops play crucial role in enhancing the land productivity, employment generation, escalating exports, upgrading economic conditions of the farmers and entrepreneurs and bestowing food and nutritional security to the people. For effective management of the prevailing crops and to extend the area under fruit crops, upgraded and reliable database is required for systematic planning and decision making. Remote sensing (RS) is a progressive tool which assists in assembling and updating information to augment scientific management strategies in fruit crops. Now-a-days the discipline of Remote Sensing and Geographical Information System (GIS) has become inspiring and beneficial with swiftly widening opportunities and supplies crucial tools that can be applied at numerous levels leading to decision making towards sustainable socio-economic development and preservation of natural resources. Remote sensing and GIS technology, and its implementation in fruit crops, have sustained a successful development in recent decades. GIS and remote sensing can play a major role in the rapid planning of several control management programmes. Moreover, remote sensing and GIS have been utilised conjunctively in diverse studies for addressing issues associated to developmental planning. Remote sensing also supplies a sound data base for creating baseline information on natural resources, a pre-requisite for planning and implementation, and monitoring of any developmental programme.
