Abstract

Agriculture based on soil is now facing difficulties due to different man-made reasons such as deforestation, industrialization and urbanization. Along with that, the usage of agricultural chemicals and unprecedented natural disasters has significantly reduced the fertility of the soil. To overcome these problems a new method of farming called as hydroponics was introduced. In Hydroponics farming System plants grow without using the soil. The proposed IOT framework that screens and controls all boundaries of hydroponics framework like water level, pH, moisture and temperature through portable application. In this proposed system, we have utilized an ESP32 microcontroller that controls the grow lights, motor and DC Fan. The motor will draw water from a reservoir tank. In the event that the moisture level of the plant’s falls down to a specific level, the framework will make an alert sound. This system can handle the entire plants growth by using versatile application. The DHT11 sensor is utilized to measure the humidity and temperature of the homestead. In framework, we additionally utilized pH sensor where pH sensor is a logical instrument that actions the hydrogen-particle action in waterbased arrangements and demonstrating its corrosiveness or alkalinity given as Ph. The keypad can also be used during unavailability of mobile phones or computers. We can control the entire framework manually by using this keypad. To design an IoT architecture with suitable sensors for automated watering, and monitoring of crops.
