Most of the people in Thailand are agriculturists. There are many economic plants including rice, corns, and tropical fruits. Therefore, most of the areas in Thailand are used for agriculture which results in various types from domestics to export sales. One of the main of the problems of agriculturists is that the current information is not available for the user. Therefore, if the technologies could be applied to help agriculture such as agriculture information, knowledge, cultivation technique, they will help to improve the quality of the product to meet the market standard. The decision support system for agriculture plan could be used to help solving the planning problem. The main advantage of the system is the analysis feature that predicts the most profitable plants and calculates the cost. After the deployment, the satisfactions from the user is in the highest level.
