English : Egyptian Research Program for Developing Expert Systems in Agriculture
Abstract Abstract: This paper presents briefly the achievements and results of the five years research program (92 to 97) on expert systems in agriculture in Egypt as expert system technology was identified as a useful tool for technology transfer in the extension services. The research program has three objectives: developing tools and methodologies to facilitate building expert systems for different Crops, building expert systems for production management of five crops, and studying the effect of expert systems usage on social and economic aspects. A complete methodology that covers knowledge engineering and software engineering has been developed. A tool based on logic programming and object oriented programming paradigms (KROL) was built. Five expert systems for cucumber, tomato, orange, lime, and wheat were developed. The evaluation of the five expert systems showed their performances are comparable to human experts. The economic, environment and human resources impacts of using expert systems were studied. The economic impact was estimated to be 23% and 26% approximately for production of cucumber and wheat respectively. The conservation of environment was also observed when the recommended amounts of chemicals are compared with the traditional practices. The positive impact on enhancing the performance of extension workers was noticed in their decision-making capabilities.
