Acquisition of Soil Ph, Data Logging and Crop Assistance for Smart Farming

Authors(4) :-Bhojraj Kalaskar, Shubham tak, Shekhar kale, Siddhasen R Patil

Presently India is facing huge agrarian crisis which is affecting the productivity. Technological solutions based on Internet of Things (IoT) and information technologies helps to provide solutions to the few of the unpredictable challenges in agricultural sector. This work proposes the conceptual model and system design for decision support of smart farming with wireless sensor so that necessary decisions can be taken by farmers. We propose a comprehensive technique using IoT approach which will be applied to agriculture. Data acquisition via sensors, control and tasks management, and data analysis are considered in the development of model and system design. The data analysis of Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) based temperature, humidity, soil moisture on the fields are uploaded onto IoT site ThingSpeak. The IoT supports analysis and visualization of the uploaded data. IoT helps to visualize the data anywhere, anytime and by anyone. This technical assistance system will help farmers to improve the crop yield by providing information with regard to soil testing based on sensor network in agriculture.
