Paper Title
Un-Supervised Classification of Rice Crop using IRS LISS III Satellite Images for Wazirabad Command Area
  Ch.Ramesh Naidu,  M.V.S.S Giridhar

In view of the increasing water scarcity and effective water management, it is highly essential for the irrigation engineers to understand the crop acreage in a command area to efficiently utilize the water resources for irrigation. Satellite images provide a useful input for the identification of crops. The objective of the present study is to estimate the Rice crop acreage in Wazirabad command area, Left Bank Canal (LBC), Nagarjuna Sagar Project (NSP), Nalgonda District, Telangana State to understand the crop water requirement of the area. This paper was completely focused on pre processing and digital classification of the satellite imagery to identify the rice crop in the command area in the rabi season for two crop years. Multi date satellite data of IRS P6 LISS III were used to estimate the rice acreage under Water Users Associations (WUAs) within the command area. The study indicated an increase in rice crop area in the year 2009 than in year 2007.

Keywords- Remote Sensing, Digital Image Processing, Geographical Information System (GIS), Water Users Association (WUA)
