The number of smart phone users will be more than 800 million by the end of 2022. Under this circumstance, Internet of Things (IoTs) has a major role in the agriculture field for productivity by monitoring day to day progress of the field. IoT aims to take internet connectivity to another level by connecting multiple devices at a time to the internet, thereby facilitating man to machine and machine to machine interactions. With the agricultural apps installed in the smart phone, farmers can realize the progress of the crop as well as the schemes and subsidies announced by the authorities.
