Abstract: Agriculture is a really important field for the economic development of any country. Most of the researchers are focusing on this field, by providing smart solutions for the day to day problem in field of agriculture. IoT (Internet of Things) has played a very essential role for the development of this sector, in fact IoT Technology has played a vital role in each and every field. IoT enables a working area in which everything works smartly and intelligently. IoT can be defined as a network of things which can make a self-configuring network. By developing new smart devices for the field of agriculture, it is converting the face of traditional farming to a new and intelligent level of agriculture production. IoT is not only enhancing the traditional agriculture to a smart agriculture but it enabling the new techniques for smart agriculture which are cost-effective as compared to the traditional agricultural tools. By the continuous monitoring of the processes and production it is also reducing the wastage of the crops. This paper aims to explore the various available techniques, methods, devices in the sector of the smart agriculture.
