Prediction of crop production using regression model and ANN: Recently, Researchers have developed several forecasting and prediction models of various crop yields in relation to different parameters as influencing factors by applications of artificial neural networks and by combining ANN and statistical techniques such as linear regression technique.
In this section, a number of related works dealing with the applications of neural network models, comparison with linear regression techniques and some combined models for the prediction and forecasting of crop yields has been reviewed. Since, the performance of a particular technique in comparison to other techniques, depends on a number of factors like the volume of the data, selection of model or technique, the methods of validation of results, the measure used for comparison and whether significant difference exists in the results etc.
, therefore, attempt has been made to carry out the review on these points. The ANNs have largely impressed the agricultural researchers, as they are able to overcome the difficulties to many extents of traditional statistical approaches.
Statistical models that can be expressed in neural network form are regression, discriminant, density estimation and graphical interaction models such as simple linear regression, projection pursuit regression, polynomial regression, non-parametric regression, logistic regression, linear discriminant functions, classification trees, finite mixture models, kernel regression and smoothing splines compared several methods for predicting crop yield based on soil properties.

Figure.3.1.1. Proposed System Design
There is no existing system which recommends crops based on multiple factors such as Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium nutrients in soil and weather components which include temperature and rainfall. The proposed system suggests an android based application, which can precisely predict the most profitable crop to the farmer. The user location is identified with the help of GPS. According to user location, the feasible crops in the respective location is identified from the soil and weather database. These soils are compared with past year production database to identify the most profitable crop in the current location. After this processing is done at server side, the result is sent to the user’s android application. The previous production of the crops is also taken into account which in turn leads to precise crop proposition. Depending on the numerous scenarios and additional filters according to the user requirement the most producible crop is suggested.
Crop yield prediction using machine learning:
A research group investigated the utilization of various information mining methods which will foresee rice crop yield for the data collected from the state of Maharashtra, India. A total of 27 regions of Maharashtra were selected for the assessment and the data was collected related to the principle rice crop yield influencing parameters such as different atmospheric conditions and various harvest parameters i.e Precipitation rate, minimum, average, maximum and most extreme temperature, reference trim cultivable area, evapotranspiration, and yield for the season between June to November referred as Kharif, for the years to 2002 from the open source, Indian Administration records.

Identified and collected information was randomly distributed into 10 sections where in one data section was used for testing while all other data sections were utilized for the preparation information. Study reported that the method applied was supportive in the precise estimation of rice crop yield for the state of Indonesian J Elec Eng & Comp Sci ISSN: 2502-4752 ? Agriculture Data Analytics in Crop Yield Estimation: A Critical Review (B M Sagar) 1089 Maharashtra, India. The precise quantification of the rice productivity in various climatic conditions can help farmer to understand the optimum condition for the higher rice crop yield . Agriculture is one of the major revenue producing sectors of India and a source of survival.
Various seasonal, economic and biological factors influence the crop production but unpredictable changes in these factors lead to a great loss to farmers. These risks can be measured when suitable mathematical and statistical model designs are applied on data related to soil, weather and past yield. With the advent of data mining, crop yield can be predicted by deriving useful insights from these agricultural data that aids farmers to decide on the crop they would like to plant for the forthcoming year leading to maximum profit. There are various systems that use diverse data mining technologies to manipulate data to derive insights and help in decision making for farmers. The present data mining systems and algorithms used were focus either on one crop and predict or forecast any one parameter like either yield or price. A research presents a survey on the various algorithms used for crop yield prediction, study used to forecast the yield .
The data and predicted output are accessible for the farmers through a web application. This aids farmer to decide on the crop they would like to plant for the forthcoming year. In addition, the web application also provides a forum for the farmers to goods the products without middlemen which help them to obtain maximum price for their products.
Crop yield prediction using data mining techniques:
India is a country where farming and agriculture based industries are the major resource of economy. It is also one of the country which suffer from major natural calamities like drought or flood which damages the crop which cause huge financial loss for the farmers and economic stability of the country. Predicting the crop yield well in advance prior to its harvest can help the farmers and Government organizations to make appropriate planning like storing, selling, fixing minimum support price, importing/exporting etc.
Predicting a crop well in advance requires a systematic study of huge data coming from various variables like soil quality, pH, essential elements quantity etc. As Prediction of crop deals with large set of database thus making this prediction system a perfect candidate for application of data mining methodologies which majorly helps in acquiring a knowledge to achieve higher crop yield. The success of any crop yield prediction system heavily relies on how accurately the features have been extracted and how appropriately classifiers have been employed.

Data mining plays a pivotal role for decision making on different concerns with respect to agriculture practices.
The objective of the data mining methods is to mine knowledge from an accessible data set and convert it into a comprehensible format for some significant application of the Agri process. Crop management of certain agriculture region is depending on the climatic conditions of that region because climate can make huge impact on crop productivity.
