In this paper an automated system has been developed to determine Smart Farming System application with the evolving technology i.e. IOT (The Internet of Things). The following activities are carried out in our report. First, monitoring environmental conditions to improve yield of the crops. Second, Monitoring the status of crops in the field, to check the growing condition of the crops. Third, analyzing the field status for seasonal crops. The feature of this report includes development of a system which can monitor temperature, humidity and moisture in agricultural field through sensors using Arduino micro-controller and in case of any discrepancy will send a SMS notification as well as a notification on the application developed for the same to the farmer`s smartphone using Wi-Fi/3G/4G. The data generated by these sensors are stored and processed in a cloud platform for IoT called ‘ThingSpeak’. As these sensors generate a huge amount of data Big Data Technologies are being used for data analysis. The Algorithm developed in this project address these problems by offering a MapReduce Architecture for handling sensor data and providing different types of analytics for farmers which they can use for smart farming.

By constantly refining the vocabulary of entities in that industry with a staunch focus on compliance attributes a powerful/flexible rule engine could be built to operate on the incoming events.
