This paper presents different techniques of smart agriculture based on the key technologies such as Internet Of Things(IOT), Wireless Sensor Network (WSN), cloud computing, mobile computing, precision agriculture. These technologies help in the improvement of the crop production. A multidisciplinary model is proposed a for smart agriculture which includes two modules. First is Agro cloud module and second is mobile module.Agro-Marketing agencies, Agro-Vendors & farmers need to be registered to the Agro Cloud module through the MobileApp module.Agro Cloud storage stores the details of farmers, periodic soil properties of farmlands, Agro-vendors and Agro-marketing agencies, Agro e-governance schemes and current environmental conditions. Soil and environment properties are sent to Agro Cloud through IoT.Proposed model helps to increase the agricultural product.
There is an increasing need of decision support systems for agriculture which is provided by is Precision Agriculture (PA). Through WSN, agriculture can be connected to the IoT, regardless of geographical differences. This approach provides real-time information about the lands and crops that will help farmers to make right decisions. The implementation of WSN in Precision Agriculture (PA) will optimize the usage of water, fertilizers while maximizing the yield of the crops and help in analyzing the weather conditions of the field.
