Abstract

Agriculture plays the major role in economics and survival of people in India. Even today, traditional methods and backward techniques are being used by different countries in the agriculture sector. In India, the agriculture techniques are labor intensive, whereas the modern agriculture technology is mainly capital intensive. Production efficiency has been increased significantly with the technological advancement in agriculture. With the help of internet of things, a novel design approach to smart farming is framed that increases the productivity. IoT will play a major role in meeting this need. IoT when combined with cloud and big data, it can improve the efficient use of inputs like fertilizers, soil, and pesticides. It also helps in scanning storage capacities like water tanks, predicting related diseases, monitoring livestock, and making sure the crops are watered well. Farmers need the variety of data and services to improve crop production based on land, crop, climate conditions, finance availability, irrigation facilities etc.. Cloud computing has been used by Government and other private agencies to store agricultural data. Cloud support various services to farmers to interact with the cloud by using any cheaper ways like sensors, mobile devices, scanners etc. Smart farming becomes an emerging concept, IoT sensors are capable of providing information about their respective agricultural fields. This proposed approach aims at making use of evolving technologies like IoT and smart agriculture using automation. The major factor that aids in improving the yield of efficient crops is by monitoring environmental factors. To monitor various agricultural activities like cutting, weeding and spraying, a remote-controlled vehicle is operated that works both in automatic and manual modes. A controller is mounted on this vehicle that monitors the temperature, soil condition, temperature and accordingly water is supplied to the field.
