Fruit Cultivation in Meghalaya is a prominent business sector for earning a good amount of state’s revenue. Meghalaya being a home of wide variety of fruits and vegetables holds a unique position in production figures among other states of North-East. Fruit crops are capable of giving higher tonnage of yield per unit area than other field crops. produces several stone fruits such as plum, peach, pear, apricot in a restricted scale. This paper focuses on details of components for designing an embedded system for orchard management that will reduce labour cost, improve tree health, increase fruit production and boost state’s economy.
