Land And Water Resources Have Almost Reached Their Limits, Price Of Commodities Are Fluctuating Almost Every Day, Profits Are Negligible For Most Of The Marginal And Small Farmers And Most Of All Getting Information Is Cumbersome. In Present Day Agriculture, Soft Resources Like Knowledge And Skills Are As Important As Hard Resources Like Inputs, And Sometimes More Important. But Estimates Indicate That 60 Per Cent Of Farmers Do Not Access Any Source Of Information For Advanced Agricultural Technologies Resulting In Huge Adoption Gap. The Main Aim Of This Paper Is To Reach Farmers For Their Awareness, Usage And Perception In E-Agriculture That Is Sms Based Alert Message Through Simple Mobile Phone User. If The Former Want To Register The Crop Details (Like Seed Sowing In Their Own Land). They Receive The Alert Message At Before Every Stage Of The Sowing Crop Is Grown.
