Agriculture is the most important sector of Indian economy. Indian agriculture sector accounts for 18% of India’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Though this sector is facing many other issues, labour insufficiency is the predominant one which affects the entire productivity. The impact of modern technology on agriculture proposes solution for the labour insufficiency through automation. The biggest challenge for the farmers is cultivation of healthy crops, due to pest attacks and diseases in crops. The farmers are also unable to identify pest attack or nutrition deficiency, they use some fertilizers and pesticides which affects the growth of crops as well as fertility of land. Each time the farmer needs to take the crop to a proper testing lab in order to find defects. The process takes more time to detect the issues, meanwhile the disease spread over the entire filed. So, the proposed system Autonomous Assistant Agricultural bot is based on modern technologies like Internet of things, Image processing, Automation and Android application. This bot does the following agricultural activities as Drilling, Seeding, Real Time monitoring of crops, Android application for bot control and communication, Weather monitoring and moisture sensing.
