This paper studies the work completed by different specialists to get an all-encompassing picture of the present status of execution of robotization in rural practices throughout the planet. World Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) said the total populace is relied upon to arrive at 9.1 billion by the year 2050, so take care of this populace food creation ought to be expanded by essentially 70%. Robotization of cultivating rehearses has been demonstrated to expand the food creation levels. Non-industrial nations need to twofold their food creation. The customary strategies for cultivating and consistently diminishing homestead work accessibility are making horticulture monetarily unviable and wasteful. In the above setting research on the advancement of insightful, self-ruling apparatus for conveying agrarian activities is fundamental to work on the amount and nature of the horticultural produce. Today there is a dire need to resolve the issues like unpredictable utilization of agrochemicals, protection of energy, control on ecological contamination and impacts of a worldwide temperature alteration.
