Farmers Buddy is a open discussion portal developed using Java programming language with Oracle as the system database. This project is useful for farmers and agricultural students to obtain information regarding various crops, the fertilizers usage for these crops, the soil condition in which these crops yield more, and the suitable climatic and environmental condition for these crops.
The complete project materials including Java source code, project documentation (doc), reports, screenshots, and paper presentation (ppt) of Farmers Buddy can be downloaded from the link below. For executing this project, you need to install oracle 10g and Java software, Tomcat server.
Presented below is a brief introduction/abstract of this project.

Farmers Buddy Project Abstract:
Farmers Buddy is implemented on a pure Java2EE architecture with Oracle database. It is a web-based open discussion portal providing information and solutions about crops, fertilizers, soil, and climate to small farmers and agricultural students.
The portal provides soil analysis for various regions and suggestions based on the soil condition and climate. It explores questions such as: “which fertilizers to use where and in what quantity”, “which crop, vegetable, or herb should be grown where and in which season”, etc.
Additionally, farmers buddy helps farmers and agricultural students in making decisions on the current market and best prices of crops and herbs. Information regarding major crop markets and the prevalent best price for the crops are published on a regular basis.
Farmers buddy also features training and online query handling for all users. Training can be request by students and general public; similarly, queries can posted on the portal via mails. Queries can be forwarded to a particular officer, and information pages of the system are dynamic so that agricultural officers can change it when needed.
The existing system is very traditional as the data management is very complex. It is difficult to provide sufficient information regarding agricultural products, soils, fertilizers, market details, and climate in a reliable way.
The drawbacks of existing system are:
- No category-wise classification of agricultural products
- Insufficiency in querying details
- Periodic report generation is a very tedious task as it takes a lot of time.
The proposed system is built in view of database integration approach; it tries to automate the entire process in an effective, simple, and reliable way. The key features are outlined below:
- Reduces complexity in data management.
- Category-wise classification of information regarding agricultural products, soils, fertilizers, and market details.
- Different access levels for different users from security point of view
- Rich user interface
- Reports are generated dynamically on a periodic basis.
- Querying details is very efficient.
- User queries and answers are maintained.
- Economical, user friendly, and effective.
Users of the System:
- Farmers and agricultural students
- General public
- Agricultural officers
Farmers Buddy is a six-modules project. (Detailed information about these modules are available in the project report.)
- User Module

The proposed farmers buddy java project provides an effective online platform where farmers and agricultural students can get information regarding various agricultural matters and get answers to their queries. The system has limitations in a sense that being a open discussion portal anyone can post anything which may mislead students and farmers.
User requirements keep on changing as the system is being used, and in this regard, farmers buddy is very flexible. Being based on object-oriented design, new features and modules can be added in to the system in future.
