India has been and is still now dependent on agriculture for its economic survival. More than 50% of its population depends on agriculture for their livelihood. Some of the major crops of India are rice, wheat, cotton, pulses and oil seeds. Even though India ranks among the top agricultural nations, its productivity in terms of yield and quality is less when compared to other countries. Due to this reason in coming years it may be difficult to fulfill the food needs of the people of India which will in near future will be most populous country than China. So this is high time to bring new measures such as good irrigational management, using organic fertilizers, using latest technology into agriculture to enhance crop production. In this paper we outline the previous work done in precision agriculture using wireless sensor networks and soft computing techniques to improve farm production in India. Also we outline what are the future research scopes and challenges that lie ahead for the technical researchers and agronomists so that they can explore this field and contribute to the agricultural sector.
