Significant amount of valuable information obtained from agricultural researches is stored independently in many facilities, such as agricultural research institutes and agricultural extension service bureaus. However, access to this information through the existing computer networks has currently been very limited. Recent developments in computer communication systems and software technology offer a solution for the problem of accessing this information. GUI that can extract user preferences has been developed. Kansei engineering methodology was applied to the development of an algorithm for identifying individual preferences, which are considered as a set of Kansei parameters. Kansei is a Japanese word that has been internationally recognized as a technical term in the discipline of information engineering. Kansei is a mixture of the concepts of human feeling, sensibility, and emotion. The software developed, called Virtual Farm, is an animated GUI. The GUI Virtual Farm is a software user interface that simulates many different bioproduction-related events, circumstances, and phenomena, using various databases that are accessed via the Internet as part of this national project.
