The journey of an Agricultural crop from seed germination to the harvesting stage encounters several stages of physical and biochemical changes. The Soil parameters like moisture, macronutrients, and micronutrients play a decisive role to get a healthy agriculture crop with minimal investment and maximal productivity. The information about real-time values of Soil parameters to the end users (farmers) along with scientific advice is essential to avoid over-use or under-use of resources like water and fertilizers, leading to optimal resource utilization. The paper presents Soil sensing technique using NPK testing kit and other conventional methods with loamy soil type of Udaipur region, and its IoT interfacing to measure and digitally disseminate the real-time on-the-soil / information of soil health to the farmers. Further, a cloud based prognostic approach is adopted to assist the farmers for their pilot crops and field fertility. The proposed technique can be a novel effort in digitalization of manual Soil Health card (Mrida card), and help farmers to increase crop productivity through minimal investigation water and fertilizers.
