Agriculture Research have benefited from incorporation of technological advances primarily developed for other industries. The industrial age brought mechanization and synthesized fertilizers to agriculture. The technology age offered genetic engineering and automation. The information age brings the potential for integrating the technological and industrial advances into sustainable agriculture production system. The application of the computer in agriculture research originally exploited for the conversion of statistical formula or complex modelin digital farm for easy and 

accurate calculation which are found relatively tedious in manual calculation. In the next generation, the same computers have been used to mechanization, automation and to develop decision support system for taking strategic decision on the agricultural production and protectionresearch. Recentlyremotesensing and 

geographic information system has place a major and crucial role in agriculture research especially in the field of yield prediction, suitability of soil for particular crop, and site specific resource allocation of agriculture inputs, etc.
