Turmeric planting is a laborious and time consuming field operation when performed manually. The semi-automatic Turmeric planters are operate due to limitations on manual feeding rates of finger which vary with respect to work duration and skill of the operator. Automation in the field of Turmeric planters has provided opportunities for savings in labour and time required for planting operation in open field and controlled environmental structures. The advent and recent advances in planting technologies suggest ample scope of working on automated Finger pickup and drop mechanisms. Use of finger pickup mechanism in automatic planters can repeatedly extract single finger automatically from the finger hopper with the help of a forks and drop at predefined location. In general, these systems comprise either a machine vision system for extracting the finger; a finger removal device with ejector; or a pick-up system, feeding system and a planting system. Such automated systems have helped ease the planting operation and efficient planting by maintaining the accuracy, precision and effectiveness in planting finger with minimum human intervention. This study highlights the research gaps and developments in smart planting technologies used in the field of Turmeric cultivation.
