Use of digital gadgets in Agriculture which started off as limited small scale pilots a couple of decades ago, is currently gaining momentum. Emerging technologies like Geo-spatial, Internet of Things (IOT), Robotics etc. offer smart and innovative utilities that can constructively disrupt agricultural value chains.
