Automated intelligence platforms, i.e., machine learning, big data, and Internet of Things (IoT), provide new deployment opportunities within the agricultural marketing paradigm. This study attempts to derive a framework of predictive models to ameliorate crop yield and assists in understanding various features that affect crop yield. On the one hand, it investigates the impact of allied technologies, including networks with memory and generative models, and on the other, it quantitatively analyzes different agri-factors, including the management of plant growth, its quality, crop disease, inorganic fertilizer and pesticide deployment, weed management, irrigation, and field-level phenotyping. Further, the study analyzes the utilization of smart farming and the monitoring of highly dependent variables across the spectrum of precision agriculture. The conclusion is to manifest the importance of networks with memory and generative models and emphasize the vital role of artificial intelligence in transforming farm methods into a novel methodology of smart information communication technology (ICT) in fidelity agriculture. Apart from increased productivity, this study seeks to contribute to the ongoing efforts to reduce the incidence of malnutrition associated with limited access and lower production of food grains.
