Abstract
Agriculture is the main source of income for the majority of the Indian population and therefore has great impact on the economy of the country. But these days, as people are focusing on technology more and more, less people are willing to do something menial like farming. Farming is an activity that depends heavily on the conditions present in the environment surrounding the agricultural field. The work of the farmer is affected by the natural conditions such as climate, topography, etc. This project implements the emerging applications of IoT technology. Using IoT networks, a control system is being proposed that will act as an embedded system which can monitor and control an irrigation and moisture sensing system. The system also consists of fully automated irrigation, fertilizer preparation, fertilizer distribution and pesticide distribution system. The method employed is to continuously monitor the soil moisture level to decide whether irrigation is needed, and how much water is required in the soil. The objective of this project is to decrease human involvement in and increase the efficiency of farming process.
