Abstract: The agricultural sector is among the largest providers of employment. It is the backbone of our nation. Although there is a large area under cultivation, still there is no maximum yield. Reasons for this can be, insufficient rainfall, deficiency of parameters needed by a plant to grow healthy, farmers may not aware about the timely requirements of the crop. The inception of Internet brought a new outlook to all the businesses. The conventional models were refurbished and enhanced for large-scale adoption. Advancements in technology led to the Internet of things, which is an extension of the network of computers to the network of smart devices. This paper reviews about the realization of Internet of Things (IoT) in the field of agriculture. It provides a comprehensive review of its framework, considerations and implications in implementation. The paper aims to educate the reader on the IoT technology in agricultural practices and its operational requirements. Agriculture IoT function is explored along with some examples from the real. The use of IoT in the fields will help the farmers reap the benefits of its technology manifold.
