Title: A Crop Breeder's Decision Support System for Sudan
Author: Bauer, Siegfried; Siddig, Khalid; Yahia, Moawia Elfaki
Abstract: The rapidly growing demand for the application of information technology have induced managers, farmers and policy makers to question the performance of the systems when no use of the computer software and information systems applications versus applying the information technology techniques. In Sudan the information systems application started to grow in the last few years, specially systems designed to automate payroll, accounts payable, inventories control and other old ideas in the domain of international computer software application, but the agricultural and environmental information technology applications and decision support systems is suffering very much from stagnancy. Moreover, it was found that the agricultural, environmental and resource management researchers suffer more from the insufficiency of information technology applications and computer software support during the period of research preparation and results calculation. All the mentioned causes waste a lot of time and effort after designing the experiment, collect the row data and during the stage of decision creation, which depend on data manipulation that is done manually. So the degree of accuracy, reliability and promptness achieved from these calculations, will not satisfy the desired conviction. This paper presents a DSS to support agronomists, stands on their ideas and helps them in determining the better level of one parameter out of two parameters applied in the field. The objectives of this system are to: accurate and simplify the data entry versus that done manually; organise and simplify the process of data showing during entering and after entering; calculate the vertical and horizontal totals and means and then represent tables as it is on the researcher papers; give consecutive steps and information that help computer-ignorant researchers to execute its stages until they achieves the last results and to give the last decision about the best seeding rate that is suitable at the specified circumstances of the field.
