There are different types of cropping patterns in the different parts of the world. Possibilistic approach states that with the help of modern technology, any crop can be cultivated any where in the world irrespective of favorable or adverse climatic conditions. However, for economic reasons, crops are cultivated at places where they can give maximum returns. The objective is to develop a GIS base system of classification of climate at micro level and to determined suitable cropping practices to realize full potential of climatic resources without causing stress on environment. The work has been carried out with the help of GIS (ARC INFO) by considering the natural condition. It is done to avoid the environmental deterioration, which ultimately affect upon the crop production and crop yield. In this case harness maximum yield as well as gross production as compared to existing one without disturbing the environment, which is the most needed part of the ongoing sustainable agriculture.
Keywords: GIS (ARC/INFO); Environment; Agro-climatology; Cropping Pattern; Crop yield.
