India`s agricultural growth has not met to its requirements and demand and it is due to the inefficient practices as well as lack of technology resources that we are currently facing. So our idea is to solve this problem by using the Internet of Things so that the farmer can work on his specific task so that the extra burden could be reduced. Certain objectives are to minimize human efforts in the area of farming, to improve yield from harvest, to reduce the space used for harvest and to improve data recording methods to improve efficiency. The project involves Agricultural Automation by measuring the Soil moisture i.e. whether the soil is dry or wet so that the farmer can decide to use wet or dry crops according to the conditions, measuring Water level, automating irrigation system based on the soil moisture and water level , measuring Humidity, temperature and Dew point, Light control Automation for the purpose of conserving energy, Intruder Alarm using Infrared radiation and in the end finally sending the sensor output report to the farmer from the remote location or farmland using Notification System.
