Background: Agricultural technology is an innovated, invented and discovered material that assists people and the country for improving production and productivity. Conventional agricultural technologies were practiced in the country in sustainable agriculture. A large number of inventions from several research and development projects were evolved and discovered that help in boosting transformation of sustainable agriculture into modern agriculture. 
Methods: The agriculture technology is currently utilized in the dairy farming, poultry farming and organic farming. The working principles of agriculture technology were glanced from the dairy farming, poultry farming and organic farming and collected from the Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Punjab and Gujarat.  
Result: The control of fly, milking parlours, calf care, young stock housing, hygiene, milk testing technologies etc are currently utilized into the dairy farming in rural India. The robots carries out ding dirty work, flock protection using drones and use of sensors for monitoring and management are applied in the poultry animals. The Information and Communication Technology (ICT) contributes at production and management in dairy farming and poultry farming. It imposes crop development and management and sprays adequate organic chemicals in the crop field. The effective and less expensive technologies like neem based preparations, concentrated organic manure, organic formulations for seed treatment and plant protection, broad-spectrum botanical pesticides and many more have been developed that promote organic agriculture.
