griculture is back bone of world’s economy and human life to survive. Agricultural Industry has more or less remained dependent on conventional methods of farming. The farming conditions have changed significantly over last few decades. Soil Fertility, Amount of Water for Irrigation and other resources have become scarcer but the global population has increased immensely. This calls in need for implementation of better farming methods like precision farming which increase the overall yield. In recent years there had a gradual increase in the usage of such systems. WSNs tell us about some problems like interoperability, communications, scalability and connectivity. The main aim for precision farming (PA) is to increase the farming production by concerning climate, water quality, terrain, weather and crop status. In recent years farmers are using information systems for the improvement of crop management and to increase productivity. This leads to create a platform for managing farm activities and to improve biodiversity and to reduce the usage of water. Such new invention should be made to enhance and develop the farming. This paper analyses and reveals how IoT can lay a strong foundation towards sustainable development in agriculture.
