Abstract: In the present day of modern agriculture, the use of fertilizers or pesticides are considered the most important yield attributing factors normally followed by the farming community. Usually, the dosage of fertilisers will be applied as per respective University recommendations provided for each micronutrient crop wise. But, complex fertilisers are widely available in the market for which some computation, mechanism is required to fix the correct quantity to meet the said University commendations. Due to intricacy involved in calculation, most of the farmers apply fertilizers approximately that leads to either under or over dosage of fertilisers. This result either in lower yield or deterioration of soil health. To overcome this problem authors have developed a user-friendly MS-Excel based Fertiliser Planner as a quick Decision Support System (DSS). It serves nearly 167 individual crops or crop stages and one can easily understand the methodology used. Further updation can be made with respect to crops, quantities and prices etc., within no time.
