Incorporating the technology into the Agriculture field for triggering the growth and identifying the pest/disease in various crops is the state of art. Extreme Changes in the weather parameters during the growth phase of crops causes serious threats which tends to go in search for new adaptive measures. The main aim of this work is to predict the occurrence of the pest in cotton crop based on such weather factors using clustering techniques. A change in any of these meteorological factors fluctuates the infestation of the pest between higher and lower. The values of the weather parameters computed which cause the occurrence of these pests can be used for prediction and precautionary measures can be taken ahead. © 2017 Academic Press.
