India is an agricultural dominated country. Agriculture is a backbone of India. Nearly 65% of population is dependent on this sector. Hence study of crops and cropping pattern play a vital role to increase the crop production. In this study an attempt will be made to map the different cropping pattern followed in Olpad taluka of Surat, Gujarat. A multidate Landsat satellite data from USGS will be used to generate cropping pattern and study of crop rotation during Kharif and Rabi will be carried out. To accomplish this Arc GIS software of (ESRI) will be used. This map is validated by taking the ground truth data using GPS receiver in the study area to improve the accuracy of the mapping. Various vegetation indices will be calculated using GIS and RS to access the efficiency of cropping system. Citation: Kakadiya Bhumika, Babulal M. Vadher, P. G. Agnihotri.
