Developing nations like India have a huge potential for agricultural business and better cultivation. Because of the large size of cultivation land, improper water supply systems and lack of technology-based agricultural practices, there is a huge gap among expected and actual quantity and quality of agricultural products. Hence there is a need for significant revival in agribusiness using emerging technologies. The article proposes an intelligent water framework device called Agribot designed for the agricultural industry to minimize the water wastage and a better supply of cultivating materials using the Internet of Things (IoT). Our proposed IOT- Agribot will energize the water framework, improve the cost-effective water usage and reduce the labor force to achieve precision agriculture. The proposed IOT- Agribot has performed well for variable weather conditions, soli type, moisture content and crops.
