In a case study, we demonstrate fuzzy modeling of farmers’ knowledge (FK) for agricultural land suitability classification using GIS. Capture of FK was through rapid rural participatory approach. The farmer respondents consider, in order of decreasing importance, cropping season, soil color, soil texture, soil depth and slope as factors of suitability of their land for certain crops. Multi-class fuzzy sets using S-membership functions were generated for soil texture, soil depth and slope… CONTINUE READING
