Indian agriculture-Potential aspects of robotics: Context and future


Rajender Kumar, Vinod Kumar, Vijaya Rani, Naresh, Amarjit Kalra

Agriculture can surely benefit from the adoption of robots. Small robots can easily match the constantly reducing small size of farms in India and can compensate for the diversion of agriculture labour to other economic sectors. These autonomous machines, once adopted, can definitely reduce farming costs and increase the income of the farmer. Besides saving costs, these robots can also save precious agricultural resources like seeds, fertilizers, irrigation water, etc., by their precise application in the field. Human errors in repetitive tasks and toiling work can be eliminated by these precise machines. Soil compaction, which is a major problem associated with heavy farm machines, can be alleviated. Robots can make advantageous use of solar energy abundantly available in Indian farms. Various agricultural robots are being developed for a variety of farm operations in different parts of the world. This review paper covers different recently developed robots in India and abroad and their context in Indian agriculture. These robots are categorized according to different agricultural operations, starting from ploughing and ending with the harvesting of crops.
