Abstract


Agriculture is essential to the prosperity of agricultural countries like India. Thus, the suggested strategy is to use automation and internet of thing (IoT) technology to make agriculture smart. Applications enabled by the IoTs include irrigation decision assistance, crop growth monitoring and selection, and more. an Arduino-powered technology that boosts agricultural productivity. This study's main goal is to find the least quantity of water necessary to grow crops. Most farmers squander a lot of time on the fields rather than concentrating on the water that plants have access to at the right moment. The suggested system determines the required amount of water based on the data obtained from the sensors. Two sensors provide data on the soil's temperature, humidity, amount of sunlight each day, and soil temperature to the base station. The suggested systems must determine the amount of water required for irrigation based on these criteria. The system's main benefit is the use of precision agriculture (PA) in conjunction with cloud computing, which will maximise the use of water fertilisers while maximising crop yields and also assist in determining field weather conditions.
