Abstract: Agriculture plays an important role in the making and development of a country. In India, agriculture is the primary source of living for more than about 60% of its population. The agriculture-related issues always hinder the development of a country. The enhancement of traditional agriculture methods and its modernization towards smart agriculture is the only solution for agriculture problems. Hence, by considering this issue, a framework is presented for smart agriculture using sensor network and IoT. The key features of this system are the deployment of smart sensors for the collection of data, cloud-based analysis, and decision based on monitoring for spraying and weeding. The smart farming approach provides valuable collection of data, high precision control, and automated monitoring approach. The proposed system presents smart agriculture monitoring system that collects and monitors the soil moisture, environmental temperature, and humidity. The measured soil moisture, temperature, and humidity are stored in ThingSpeak cloud for analysis.
