dc.description.abstractFarm Smart 2000 is a decision support system’ (DSS) for managing crop production on the Prairies. Farm Smart 2000 provides “single-window” access to 3 different tiers of decision support utilizing the Internet, expert systems’ and integrated multiple agents3. Farm Smart 2000 provides support for most management aspects of crop production including variety selection, machinery selection, planting, crop rotations, fertility, all facets of weed management, disease management, residue management, harvesting, soil conservation, and economics for the crops of wheat, canola, barley, peas, and flax. In its most sophisticated tier of decision support, Farm Smart 2000 utilizes multiple agents, integrating them such that they cooperate together to solve complex interrelated crop production problems. A global structure is used for achieving the required communication and coordination among the agents resulting in an “open system”, enabling Farm Smart 2000 to easily extend its problem-solving capabilities by integrating additional agents. Farm Smart 2000 has been developed using a bottom-up4 problem-solving approach, where underlying on-farm data and agronomic knowledge are the driving forces behind farm-specific problem and planning solutions. To accomplish this, a customized global production Record Keeping System has also been developed.en_US
