Indian agriculture, even after the Green Revolution, is not as productive as it could potentially be. It calls for a second Green Revolution – one of “precision agriculture‟, where cutting-edge technology is used to maximize production with minimum input costs and resources. In this paper we present a multi-purpose agricultural robot to implement precision irrigation, fertilizer addition and de-weeding, apart from continuous monitoring of crop and soil conditions. This will involve efficient utilization of water resources, intensive plant and soil monitoring, condition based use of fertilizers and the ability to work in unstructured environments. Developed agriculture needs to find new ways to improve efficiency.
