A Soil Quality detection and Crop Management System Using IOT
Shweta Tatikonda, A.S. Gundale
= Indian population based upon agriculture and one third of the income of nation arises from agricultural practices. Hence it plays a vital role in the development of the country. Various issues related to farming is continuously hampering the development of the country. Possible solution for these problems is to opt for modernized agriculture that comprises of modern trends. Hence, agriculture can be made smart using IoT and other technologies. Smart agriculture increases crop yield, decreases water wastage and imbalanced use of fertilizers. In agriculture to grow healthier yield nutrients existing in the soil should be managed properly. Continuous growing of plants affects the soil fertility and its fertility level goes down. Farmers needs to consult soil testing laboratory for their soil quality to decide fertilizer dose. Consequently, by using technology the fertility of soil can be verified using various sensor-such as temperature / humidity sensor, pH sensor, and Sodium-Phosphorous- Potassium (NPK) sensor. The soil condition monitoring using IoT produces real data, which can be analyzed to decide various crop management parameters, such as watering cycle, fertilizer and pesticide cycles. Internet of Things has capacity to transform the lives of people in the India in an efficient manner. The ever-growing population would touch more in few years. So, to feed such an immense population, agriculture industry needs to embrace IOT. The demand for more food has to address challenges that include excessive climate conditions, weather change and different environmental affects that results from farming practices.
