Abstract

Agriculture plays an important role in the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of every nation and likewise in the economy of the India also. It has been reported that 85% of India's population relies for their income on agriculture. There are a number of problems related to the agriculture like knowing the moisture content of the soil and the attributes/aspects of soil in the field The IOT helps farmers to overcome the majority of agricultural problems. The smart irrigation system based on IOT has been built to resolve the extra/additional flow of water into the field of agricultural land. For many purposes, such as water management and parameters of the soil like moisture content of the soil, soil’s pH value and last one humidity are measured and crop nutrition, weather forecasting observed values are collected by microprocessor and further sent to the mobile user, an IOT-based smart irrigation system for performance. GSM module has been utilized to create a communication link between the farmer and the agricultural field. By SMS, the current field status will be sent to the farmer. This whole system will work towards in providing the information of the red, black and the laterite soil’s moisture content for the Thus the farmer can access the field condition server anytime, anywhere, thus reducing the workforce and time which will save time and the money. This system can also be used to ensure the proper amount of water for the irrigation of the crops. This research will also be helpful in determining the proportionate quantity of the chemical fertilizers and the pesticides for a particular crop based on the output of the sensors thus minimizing the toxicity of the crops
