Currently, agricultural industry is facing several challenges. These challenges can be reduced or removed by using automation in the agricultural tools and techniques. Industry 4.0 is the industrial fourth revolution which focused on automations in manufacturing technologies such as cyber physical systems, Internet of Things, artificial intelligence and cloud and cognitive computing. The development and improvement of the connectivity between agricultural tools is leading to significant progress in the agricultural practices. Advancement and automation of the technologies with Internet of Things (IoT), replacing traditional agricultural methodologies which causes wide range of improvements in the fields. The main purpose of this paper is focused on the review of basic concept of Industry 4.0, the number of new tools and techniques used by smart agriculture for the improvement in the fields and the list of benefits of smart agricultural solutions. Smart Agriculture is using advanced technologies such as sensors, devices, machines and Information Technology, robots, GPS technology which will allow farms to be more profitable, efficient, safe, and environmentally friendly. This paper reviews and will provide a high level conceptual understanding of Industry 4.0 in Agriculture and a summary of the existing and developing technologies related to it. The goal is to enhance the awareness of this technology and the potential applications. This high-level summary will not include detailed design, manufacturing process or testing procedures.
