— India is the third largest economy in Asia after Japan and China; it is continuing to grow rapidly. About 75% people are living in rural areas and are still dependent on Agriculture. About 43% of India’s geographical area is used for agricultural activity. So as a whole in India there is a lot of contribution from the Agriculture Sector, this is our area of Interest here. This paper discusses everything about providing the SMS updates on various agriculture products as per the user requirements on his GSM and/or GPRS mobile phone. The updates may vary from Pricing, Availability, Stocks, and Need of Various Products on the Market. Basically this will be expected to be helpful for Farmers around the state. Also since it works anywhere there’s a mobile signal, it does not require Internet. In this paper we glanced over the variation/category of cloud computing named Data-as-a-Service (DaaS), since we are providing Pricing Details to customer against the Database Queries. And also the Deployment Model we consider is Community Cloud. It’s mainly concerned about a specific group of Customers which is in our case The Farmers.
