|Abstract||A real-time crop sensor for site specific input application is the new innovation in the field of precision agriculture. At least three different type of crop sensors,viz.. Soil Doctor, N-Senior and Green Seeker have been used in different field crops. The key advantage of all these systems is that they do not need recommendation maps. However, no published data is available on Soil Doctor adoption by farmers due to company’s aggressiveness for protective patent rights. The N-Sensor is being used mainly for wheat and other small grain crops. However, one of the key limitations of N-Sensor is ambient light source. Handheld Green Seeker sensor is the latest addition to the list of crops sensors. The active light source is a major advantage of the Green Seeker sensor. Our preliminary observations on NDVI in relation to canopy development and crop growth in sugarcane are very encouraging and we envisage a potential scope of Green Seeker optical sensor for monitoring crop growth in order to adjust timing and dose of N application for maximizing cane and sugar productivity.|

National Digital Library of India (NDLI) is a virtual repository of learning resources which is not just a repository with search/browse facilities but provides a host of services for the learner community. It is sponsored and mentored by Ministry of Education, Government of India, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT). Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI provides user group-specific services such as Examination Preparatory for School and College students and job aspirants. Services for Researchers and general learners are also provided. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for 10 most widely used Indian languages. It is built to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is designed to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is developed, operated and maintained from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Education, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
