Abstract: At the present scenario, agriculture industries are working hard to produce farmer satisfied products at affordable cost. The globalization and heavy worldwide competition stress them to precise and sustain in the market. The existing system are to be modified for smart manufacturing to cop up international benchmarking. The modifications consist of modern machine tools, automation system, machine learning technologies and systematic approach. The existing system and path for every individual industry are unique. Here the skill needed is to fit suitable enablers to the factors. The enactment of Industry 4.0 appropriately to industry is a task, because different industries lie at different sectors. In this context a study is carried to identify the important technological enablers for the enactment of Industry 4.0 in Indian agricultural industries. Various enablers essential for implementing Industry 4.0 has been identified from literature review. The Interpretive structural modelling(ISM) is employed for finding the mutual relationship among the enablers. Data collected to rank the enablers in the agricultural field. The technological enablers are further being classified as dependent and driving factors. Thus a hypothetical model is created based on literature review. A proper acknowledgement of interactions among enablers will help organization to rank the factors and manage these factors with more efficiency to produce advantages of implementing Industry 4.0. This paper is aiming to identify the various enablers to implement Industry4.0 in Indian industries.
