  Indian agricultural sector is characterized by presence of large no of small and marginal farmers. More than 80% of the farmers are small and marginal who owns less than 2 hectares of land. They have scarcity of financial resources and therefore have remained isolated from advanced farming technology. The lack of mechanization in the country has ultimately resulted in low farm productivity and farm income. Therefore, despite availability of sufficient arable land, India unambiguously will face challenges to meet spurred demand and to achieve its ambitious aim of doubling farmers’ income.

   Some of new technologies such as Precision Agriculture, and Agricultural Robots have potential to improve farm productivity and their adoption has gained momentum in the past few years. However, factors such as high initial investment costs, lack of awareness and low understanding pertaining to new technology are standing against the smart farming technologies to penetrate well in the country. Moreover, small and marginal farmers being sceptical about returns from investments have shown reluctance in taking interests in these new techniques.
