Farming is a traditional trade and operations involved in production have largely remained habitual in nature. Agriculture is considered to be a primary occupation for most a segment of population in all part of world. Traditional methods of farming incorporated little to no use of IT, despite its potential for dramatically increasing operations efficiency.
The incorporation of ICT into farming involves the integration of diverse technologies, with each capable of positively impacting the efficiency of farming activities, thereby promoting sustainable agricultural practice. At the same time, high costs and inefficiencies have made farming an increasingly unviable profession for farmers in developing countries like Nepal. Technological importance has been a great support for making decisions in various fields especially in agriculture. The development of agriculture has been on under development for the past few years due to lack of Agriculture knowledge and environmental changes.
E-Agriculture is a platform for supporting and improving agricultural products. The main aim of this project is to reach farmers for their awareness, usage and perception in e-Agriculture. This report reviews some proposed e-agriculture frameworks and presents a framework for the implementation of an e-farming system that can be used in aiding sustainable agricultural/farming practices.
