This paper shows that poverty cannot be eradicated, but reduced to the level of living comfort. The causes, effects and solutions to poverty are addressed. The principle of tilling the ground to meet the geometrical wave of food insufficiency across the globe was discussed. The expected holy wedlock between farming and programming received due attention. Applications of Microsoft Visual Studio, 2010 to eleven models that are imperative inputs to Penman-Monteith and Priestly-Taylor equations depict that to achieve quick and drastic poverty reduction software applications should be further developed and integrated with equipment. We developed a dynamic VB. NET class library for soil heat flux, net radiation, psychometric constant, saturation vapour pressure, and slope of saturation vapour pressure curve, barometric pressure at various altitudes, actual vapour pressure, virtual absolute air temperature, mean atmospheric density and latent heat of vapourization. Besides, a flexible and accurate client application where our class functionalities were exposed was developed. Results from our package were compared with previous works and found to be in agreement. With our package, the use of look-up table is eliminated as the required value(s) could be estimated and presented in diverse formats dynamically for use and keep.
