In: Proceedings of the European Conference on Precision Agriculture, July 7-11, 2013, Catalonia, Spain. CDROM.

Interpretive Summary: Zoning of agricultural fields is an important task for utilization of precision farming technology. This paper extends previously published work entitled “Zoning of an agricultural field using a fuzzy indicator model” to a general case where there is disagreement between groups of managers or experts on the significance of parameters determining the productivity of agricultural crops. A tool for zoning of an agricultural field using a fuzzy indicator model in combination with tool for multi-attributed decision-making (MADM) was developed with software. This paper provides an example of the application of this method for common situation and shows its utility.
