Agriculture is the oldest occupation in the world, the penetration of technology was very low. Around 48 percent of India’s 1.3 billion people depend on agriculture. The country’s agricultural GDP stands at $396 billion as of 2018 and ranks second worldwide in farm output. According to an EY August 2020 report, India ranks second after China, accounting for 11.9 percent of the global agriculture Gross However, the Indian agribusiness ecosystem is significantly fragmented and unorganised with multiple levels of intermediaries and middlemen across the agricultural value chain. Despite the agritech sector having strong investment activity in the last few years, the market penetration in the sector is still very low (1 percent), according to a latest EY report. The untapped market potential, opportunities in agritech, global investment, and a robust policy framework will drive growth in Agriculture. This study helps farmers to monitor micro-climatic conditions of their farms, quantify irrigation and with irrigation prediction so that they can take accurate, proactive and preventive decisions. This helps in precision farming by integrating field data, weather patterns, and crop information to drive agronomic advice to farmers.
