The demand on agriculture has been greatly intensified by a growth in the population. The present century witnesses a change from the traditional approaches to more advanced approaches with the introduction of technology. The Internet of Things (IoT) is current and future in all aspects that affect everyone's lives by making it smart. It is a network of various computers that make up a network that configures itself. The Internet of Things (IoT) has changed agriculture's efficiency and quantity. The integration of IoT, Big Data Analytics, wireless sensor networks and cloud computing offers a wide range of scope for predicting, proceeding, and analyzing circumstances and improving real-time operations. The aim is to provide a technology that records the live data of crops, soil moisture, temperature and illumination for farmers and so they can take necessary actions to do smart farming. This also enables the farmers to increase their yields with limited resources. This review outlines the importance of IoT in agricultural domain, the various components used in IoT for agriculture and finally we discussed the existing applications of IoT in agriculture.
