India is a world second populated country, each year the population of people is increasing and the requirement of water and food also increasing; hence the management of water and food resources is more important for this increased population. As per the survey 89% of ground water is used for Agriculture in which more than 60% water is used for Paddy and Sugarcane irrigation, where as only 6% & 5% water is used for Domestic and Industrial purpose respectively. Internet of Things (IoT) plays a very important role in the agriculture industry. The smart agriculture system reduces the wastage of excess water and effective usage of fertilizer and thereby increases the crops yields. In this paper, the system is developed to monitor crops fields with taking in the consideration of environmental and soil parameters which are mostly used to automate the irrigation system. Based on the soil moisture and light intensity the threshold values we operated the motor and light automatically. The developed the hardware system and get the data from sensors and all these sensors are connected to the controller board which prints the data on LCD. The controller is serially connected with the Wi-Fi module then the data is stored on open-source IoT platform and then data is also show on mobile application. This system is more useful in areas where water and electricity are main issues; also we can reduce the time, money, manpower and workload of the farmer.
