Precision agriculture? brings data and automation to traditional tasks, making farming more productive and profitable. Seed plantation is one of the most important and periodic jobs of the farmers. A low-cost agriculture robot or seed Robot has been designed for ploughing and precise sowing of seeds in a cost-effective method. While traditional sowing methods such as dropping seeds manually into the soil or dibbling allow for seeds to be sowed in organized rows and columns, broadcasting involves sowing of seeds across an area by scattering resulting in poor germination rates. Yet, higher seeding rates are achieved by trading off with more expenditure on seed inputs to maintain the gain in yield. Poor germination in the broadcasting method because of insufficient contact between the seed and the soil is also rectified by this robot. As an approach to achieve optimum crop growth seed spacing is done. Seed spacing is designed with ARDUINO and automation is achieved as the robot takes a turn on detecting a fence at the end of the farm. Thus, drastically reducing the number of days and labor required for the above-mentioned processes.
