Abstract : Agriculture is one of the very old human occupation, but it is not a stranger to automation. The world population is increasing exponentially and with it comes the need to produce more food. Conventional method requires more manpower and water. This paper deals with a scaled down model of an agriculture automated system. The hardware employs linear guides in the x, y and z directions that allow agricultural process like seed injection, humidity sending and watering with required precision there by maintaining the crop and soil economically. The whole system is fully controlled and automated from the sowing of seeds to watering them. The hardware developed was tested for its functioning with the scaled down plantation model integrated toit.
