Review on IoT for Indian Farmers

Authors(2) :-Heena M. Sangtrash , Anand S. Hiremath

India is a land of versatile soils and different weather conditions. Due to sudden rain and without accurate weather forecast, Indian farmers face problems such as damage of the already grown crops in their field. And even the Indian farmers does not have a sufficient knowledge about their soil. Due to change in the structure of soil because of different weather condition, farmers are not well aware of which crop will be optimally suited to be grown in such soil. These are some of the problems that farmers face. IoT device is used for solving such issues for Indian farmers. The solution proposed for this will report any precautionary steps to be taken for farmers using a centralized data server which analysis the data and notifies farmer. The solution also has portable IoT device and hence in any rural areas it can be implemented.
