Cloud computing is a platform of multi-systems like software, Hardware, data base storages and IT system. Whereas the Internet of Things IoT is a technology which maps real- time objects with each other by using network. Cloud computing with Internet of thing is powerful combination of handling data and sharing the information to take decisions. Cloud and IoT technology adopted by many sectors but the main focus in these days is to use these technologies in the agriculture development. This paper focus on the importance of using cloud technology and IoT technology, their application and benefits regarding the agriculture sector, as agriculture is the main root of the success for the nation also for its economic conditions. This paper propose a model by brief study of cloud an IoT application, the purpose of this model is to highlight the how to take information of agriculture data from different sources and use the information and data regarding agriculture to reduce the man power and provide platform for the users to take the decision easily.
