Abstract

In the Indian context, awareness has increased about implementing technology in the agriculture industry. Manual collection of desired farm environment data required for analysis can be sporadic leading to incorrect measurements and findings. This can cause difficulty in controlling various important factors. Wireless distinct sensor nodes can reduce time and effort required for monitoring an environment. The graphical representation of PC data allows simplified diagnosis and analysis. Monitoring systems can ensure quicker response times to adverse factors and conditions, better quality control of the produce and low labour cost. Generally, farming lands, greenhouse/polyhouse are at remote locations from the farmer’s residence and requires 24*7 monitoring. The utilization of technology would allow for remote measurement of factors such as temperature, humidity, soil moisture, water level and light detection leading to increase in productivity. Crops are prone to various diseases due to various factors. One such factor is dew condensation in greenhouses which can be overcome by humidity monitoring. The proposed system includes all the above features. In addition to this, there are provisions of security like password lock and human/animal intrusion detection mechanism and according notification SMS is sent to farmer. The farmer is also notified on his mobile phone of the soil moisture level, water level, temperature, humidity, power status of motor, etc. using a GSM module. The overall proposal is optimized taking into consideration the intellectual and understanding level of farmers.
