Background/Purpose: All nations, developed or developing, place the greatest emphasis on agricultural sustainability. In order to manage and produce agriculture sustainably, remote sensing based and geographical information system (GIS) technique is becoming increasingly significant instruments. In this work, we examine the integrated application of RS and GIS technology in various locations for sustainable agricultural growth and management of Rubber Industry in India. Remote sensing and Geographical Information System (GIS) are the most recent technologies or support systems or tools that will generate much more accurate results and conduct various geographic analyses even in the most complex situations.

Objective: Using various studies as case studies, this paper examines the various ways in which the natural rubber industry and cultivation area can be improved using GIS and remote sensing technology.

Design/Methodology/Analysis: Using the ABCD analysis, data from scholarly papers, online articles, and other sources are analyzed and presented. Additional sources are used to collect inputs for the case study, mainly include specific reports, circular and Rubber science magazine articles.

Findings/Result: This paper examines the areas in which the Natural Rubber industry can be improved using GIS and Remote sensing technology. Traditionally, human-centered land survey, soil survey, Rubber area survey, Plant disease diagnosis, soil mineral survey etc.were very time consuming and expensive. Using GIS & RS field, we are able to overcome these shortcomings.

Originality Value: This research investigates the various applications of GIS and RS, which aids in the development of the natural rubber industry.

Type of Paper: Industry Analysis-based Research Case Study.
