The aim of sustainable agriculture is production of high-quality produce and raw materials in sufficient quantity for a wide range of consumers. The application of automated farm equipments helps in improving the efficiency of the crop production as well as in decreasing the labour cost. Decrease in total cost of production, cutback in time and reduction in the effort involved in the agricultural process is the resultant outcome. The aim of the project is to develop multipurpose automated farm equipment that can perform operations like ploughing, seed dispensing and spraying water or pesticides. This equipment is battery operated and is controlled by a smart phone. The equipment also provides manual control when necessary and is controlled using IoT (Internet of Things). The smart phone keeps a farmer updated about ongoing conditions on his agricultural land using IoT at any time and place. IoT can downgrade the cost and labour related problems and improve the productivity of conventional farming. Implementing this farm equipment in the agriculture field can assist farmers in the preliminary stages of agriculture i.e. ploughing, seed dispensing, pesticide and water spraying. This equipment is helpful for farmers who are interested to continue conventional agricultural activity, with improved output.
