Agriculture is the primary source of livelihood for about 58% of India’s population. The Indian food industry is poised for huge growth, increasing its contribution to the world food trade every year due to its immense potential for value-added, particularly within the food processing industry. Indian food and grocery market is the world’s sixth-largest, with retail contributing 70% of the sales.
The problem is that agriculture in India is terribly affected due to several changing factors and a lack of knowledge about it by the farmers. Various changes in the soil moisture and characteristics make it tough for the farmers to analyze the situation and take appropriate actions for plant growth.
