Launching of Online Fertilizer Recommendation for Rubber Growers
Rubber Soil Information System (RubSIS), a web-based fertilizer recommendation facility for rubber growers developed by RRII will be launched by Smt. Nirmala Sitharaman Ji, the Honorable Minister of Commerce and Industry, Government of India at 4 PM on 23rd January 2017 in New Delhi.
RubSIS is a powerful ICT tool which empowers the rubber grower to take an informed decision regarding fertilizer application. It combines principles of Soil Science, Agronomy, Geospatial technology and ICT. RubSIS was conceived entirely by RRII and developed in collaboration with National Remote Sensing Center, ISRO (for mapping rubber plantations in the country using satellite-based remote sensing technique), National Bureau of Soil Survey & Land Use Planning, ICAR (for soil fertility analysis) and Indian Institute of Information Technology and Management–Kerala (for software development).
