Ten satellite imagery and four non-imagery data were used to develop soil nitrate prediction models using neural network architectures i.e. Backpropagation, Modular and Radial basis function. Back propagation model yielded an average prediction accuracy of 67.92% with a root mean square error of 0.87. Radial basis function model, on the other hand, predicted with an average prediction accuracy of 90.04%. The modular neural network predicted with average prediction accuracy of 77.12%, correlation coefficient of 0.62 and RMSEP of 0.51. The modular neural network based prediction model, showed overall highest performance than BPNN and RBFN models.
