In the forecast of experts and decision makers about potential decrease in crop yields, this study was carried out with work approach and the techniques of Remote Sensing (RS) based crop discrimination and area estimation. With single date approach based on maximum likelihood classification algorithm, The Landsat imagery data used for assessment of Rabi crop (Rice), from past two decades. The research work has been focused on mapping and assessment of Rabi Crop (Rice) to identify the state of crop and its impact on socio economic environment of District Dadu.
