Modernization in agriculture sector is one of the major challenging problems in India. Currently, Indian farmers faced many problems in agriculture domain such as lack of irrigation infrastructure, market infrastructure and transport infrastructure along the presence of a chain of middlemen through whom most agricultural commodities must circulate before finally reaching consumers etc. One of the possible solutions for improvement is by using mobile applications help in gathering information from farmers such location-based information and environmental. This chapter presents a framework to solve the problems in agriculture by using Mobile based Cloud computing platform which makes smart farmers and increases the productivity. This framework promotes a fast development of agricultural modernization, realize smart agriculture and effectively solve the problems concerning agriculture, countryside, and farmers.
