One of the most well-known and feared concepts in the world today are risk which is the product of uncertainty. Agriculture is a complicated human activity involving uncertainty and change in day to day activities. There is a need for system thinking considering agriculture with a sense of its complex wholesomeness and to take active and feasible action as many farmers are suffering with such situations. Famer experiences the impact of profit or loss as per his attitude and actual nature of his mental status This study is taken up to provide the best decision among several choices even at uncertain conditions instead the farmer’s vague and random choices to achieve better profits. The study suggested that Paddy is the best option if the famer is pessimist whereas Red gram will be better choice if the farmer is optimistic in nature. Sesame is the best if he critically suffered with previous fluctuated instances. But Groundnut is a fetching crop for the farmer who is ready to accept risk despite profits.
