Abstract:
Farmers and gardeners have worked with their soils over many centuries to produce increasing amounts of food to keep pace with the needs of a burgeoning world population. The aim of this study was to develop a device and an android application that will detect the available nutrients of the soil for the increase in crop production and to provide accurate information for the suitable crop to grow in the field. The descriptive and developmental research method was used in this study. There were 32 farmers from the Association of farmers in Paranas, Western Samar (AFPWS) and the Department of Agriculture - Paranas. 25 farmers and 7 employees of the Department of Agriculture - Paranas were interviewed and given questionnaires for their experiences in using the mobile application and the soil nutrient detector. Findings indicated that the mobile application and the device were cost-effective and give the farmers the chance to save time and effort in detecting the nutrient available in the soil and what crop is best suited to plant in their areas. It also improved the task efficiently and conveniently between them. Using other sensors that are more accurate can be replaced in the existing device.
