Abstract : Majority of India’s economy depends on agriculture. Rice being the staple food for people of eastern and southern parts of India, its yield directly depends on the lives of the farmers. Among various diseases that affect the Paddy crop, Blasts in leaves are predominant. Without sufficient knowledge about the health of the crop, cultivators may use excessive pesticides which affects the environment in various phases. Energy being one of the major crisis, agriculture sector does not get proper supply of electricity to maintain the yield. The proposed project establishes an effective solution for the above mentioned problems by integrating Solar Power and a system to monitor the crop health and provide treatment, if necessary. Rural street lighting can be an added advantage of the project. © 2018 the Author(s). All rights reserved.
