Abstract -
Computerized farming is an agricultural technique involving large-scale, stacked, indoor agriculture in urban areas. Computerized farming is the urban farming of fruits, vegetables, and grains, inside a building in a city or urban centre, in which each floors are designed to accommodate certain crops. While many people fantasize about the construction of towering “farm scrapers” spiking up in the centre of our cities’ financial districts, economic factors such as high real-estate, construction, energy, and employment costs make computerized farming more practical in underutilized or vacant commercial structures in suburban areas on the outskirts of our major cities. Computer technology during the last decade has numerous changes in the many fields. The evolution of the computer, in the early ages, the mainframe computers was made a big evolution in which only expert accessed the computer. But today, the popular devices as laptops, tablets and Smartphone are owned and accessed by all ages. Computers and their applications changed the face of most traditional occupations including agriculture. Using of mobile technologies as a tool of intervention in agriculture is increasingly popular. Smartphone penetrations enhance the multidimensional positive impact on sustainable poverty reduction and identify accessibility in agricultural space. Reach of smart phone even in rural areas extended the ICT services beyond simple voice or text messages. A few Smartphone apps are available for agriculture, horticulture, animal husbandry and farm machinery. The purpose of this investigation was to determine ways to supply food to cities in an energy efficient and sustainable manner from both a significant and sufficient approach.
