Abstract: The objective of this literature survey was to identify the applications of Mobile Cloud Computing and Big Data Analytics techniques in the agriculture sector. Related literature from IEEE journals and other International journals were collected and reviewed. A conclusion is made by proposing a new model that uses mobile cloud computing and big data analytics techniques together to meet several challenges that the farmers are facing today in the agriculture sector. The proposed model helps farmers in making optimal decisions on their agricultural production and thereby reducing the post-harvest wastage of their products.
