Although, initially cloud computing was envisaged as a commercial process but in the modern context it is impacting immensely the scientific, technological, academic, social and many other domains. Agriculture is another field which is being benefited greatly with the applications of cloud computing. The collaboration of cloud computing with agriculture processes has provided the necessary impetus to agro production, marketing and sales around the globe. This paper present a brief introduction to cloud computing as well as highlights the primary applications of cloud computing being deployed across the globe in agriculture sector.
