Abstract

Although the overall technological advancement in India, there has been less attentive towards the Agriculture sector. Due to the lack of technological awareness among the farmers in India the position of producing maximum  yield crop is not satisfactory. Conventional practices are only carried out in Agriculture field, and as the literacy rates of farmers are significantly low, applying and working with new technology is a major concern. If instead of conventional practices if they implement the blend of new technological support, then this will be the major sector for employment generation as well as increasing the GDP of India. As of 2018, this sector contributes about 14.39% of the total G.D.P. of India but around 50% of the people are involved in this. The productivity of the farming industry can be increased with the help of IoT. The application of the IoT ecosystem can bring revitalization in the agricultural field. All the parameters related to soil temperature, water level, humidity, air quality, crop yield, crop price, real-time data and proper timing of crop to be delivered to market, which will help to increase productivity. The study says we will have 9.6 billion people on Earth by 2050 which will increase demand for food and IoT in agriculture should be an important driver to meet this requirement. Therefore we need to develop such a system that will enhance farming procedures. The objective of this paper is to present an idea of how the IoT ecosystem can enhance the overall farming output as well as increasing GDP.
