In agricultural field, dissemination of information regarding pest population and their occurrence is very important for taking remedial measures in advance to save the crops to a great extent. The information dissemination through mobile application is adapted due to effective and efficient way to communicate to end users at proper time. In this study mobile application development and its implementation is discussed. The application is developed with push notification feature in order to disseminate the advisories about the infestation of pest and remedial measures based on the objective forewarning of pests through statistical modeling.
