Abstract: Agriculture is the backbone of our nation. Our country’s growth is highly dependent on the growth of agriculture. Hence, it is mandatory that we need to identify and incorporate new technologies and solutions to protect and improvise problems faced in cultivation by the agriculturalists. In agricultural sector one of the major reasons of losses are due to pests and plant diseases. The harm and impairment caused by insect pests is one of the fundamental factors affecting the crop production. Pests and insects can have adverse effect on agricultural production in turn affecting market access, natural environment, and our lifestyle. The objective of this work is focused on detecting and eliminating the underground worms that causes damage to the crops. An unmanned embedded system is proposed that automatically detects the existence of underground worms in the soil that are not visible to human eyes. This system helps in identifying the existence of worms in the soil using a thermocouple device and eradicates them by instantiating the pesticide on them.
