Abstract: In Asia, around 1 billion rural people migrate to urban areas for employment because of factors like poor crop yield , low income from farming and higher aspirations . UN Agenda 2030 for sustainable development wanted to ensure the implementation of new systems and practice , to increase crop yield . Innovative Technology solutions and money for farmers, to buy them will yield the desired results . Current paper focus on Trans Disciplinary Approach ( Consortium of Industry, Academia, Government, Non – governmental Organizations (NGO) , Financial Institutions ) to support villagers in smart farming ( use of Information & Communication Technologies in farming), resulting in improvement of quantity and quality of crop yield . Increase in income and drop in expenses will lead to more money with farmers, which can help in meeting their aspirations ( ability to pay for better education , healthcare , house ).. This paper analyses the various reports on how trans disciplinary approach can contribute to the sustainable rural development and help in forecasting crop yield using Autoregressive integrated moving average (ARIMA), Data captured using UGV’s, UAVs etc.
