Changes in rainfall patterns due to climate change have resulted in losses of farmers in Indramayu. Farmers has loss of economic due to failing of planting and harvesting every year in this location. Therefore, farmers need information on future rainfall prediction to plant rice accurately and on time. The information system should be able to be easily accessed by farmers and extension. This paper discuss research result on rainfall prediction system and planting rice with high resolution in dasarian (10-days) scale. The information system includes predictive technology using Geographic Information System (GIS) with input from Smart Climate Modelling using stochastic approach. Information delivery system was developed in line with the predictions of rainfall information and feedback planting season comes to evaluate the predicted results. Such information will be dynamically run through overlaying with Google maps on the web server. This system can be accessed by the public and was designed to automatically generate maps of rainfall and planting prediction that can be viewed directly in the Google maps application. This research result will be effort to adapt to climate change that has impacted to agriculture sector in Indonesia.
