In the 21st century, we are standing among a plethora of technologies and tools that prove the concepts of real-life applications. One such example is the internet of things (IoT) that uses sensor technology for communication. IoT is the network of physical devices that is used in various applications such as vehicles, home appliances, and telecommunication that are used to exchange data. In this chapter, the authors proposed the theoretical framework for IoT-based farming. The major challenge in farming is to deliver the product at the best possible price and quality to the end consumers. Now, in the current scenario, only 50% of the farm produce is reaching the consumer due to wastage of products, high cost, and local black marketing. The work is to focus on providing the solution based on past data analytics and current market conditions, which will help to reduce the cost and provide a minimal price to the farmer. The IoT is used for data collection, which will help to reduce the middle hops and agents between the farmer and consumer.
