Agriculture is an important sector for developing countries like India. However, the development of agricultural production has been hindered by certain issues related to the use of traditional systems. In the past, much research has been carried out to modernize the agricultural system. However, there is a need for low-cost and easy-to-use technological solutions to the poor farmers of the country. Hence, the paper aims at making the existing agricultural system smart by using IoT. A compact, lightweight and integrated system has been developed comprising multi-sensors to measure all the parameters and continuously monitor the soil content, weather conditions, temperature and humidity. All parameters are real-time monitored over the Internet of Things (IoT), thereby making it remotely accessible from anywhere with the help of an android application. The paper proposes an arduino-based automatic irrigation IoT system which can increase the productivity of the crop eventually. Thus, a basic implementation of some sensors along with wireless networking would come out as a boon to the farmers. The results obtained are considerable and under tolerable ranges.


Agriculture is considered as the basis of life for the human species. It plays a significant role in the growth of the country's economy. It also provides sizeable employment opportunities to the people. An increase in the agricultural sector is necessary for the development of the economic condition of our country. From the survey of the United Nations - Food and Agriculture Organizations, the global food production should be increased by 70% in 2050 for the evolving population. So, with the rising population, there is a need for increased agricultural production. To support vast production in farms, the requirement for the amount of fresh water used in irrigation also rises.
