Conventional agriculture strategies do not suffice to serve the food demand for the growing population nowadays. Scientists carried out many investigations for effective agricultural outputs over the last few decades. The newly emerging technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), deep learning, machine learning, Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing, cognitive computing and so on are motivating the agriculture scientists to invent novel methods in farming. Researchers performed Crop wise specific studies for the benefit of the farmers, which use different technological devices like sensors, cameras, drones, etc. Automation of agricultural equipment has become crucial to provide instant results to help the farmers in decisionmaking wherever required. The article thoroughly explains the impact of automation and AI in the field of agriculture today. It also highlights the usage of prominent AI techniques nowadays and possible research directions to make use of AI to assist the farmers.

Keywords: Automation, Agriculture, Deep learning, Farming, Machine learning, Sensors.
