Abstract: The use of technology in agriculture plays a vital role in revolutionizing traditional methods of farming. The insufficiency of technology and the use of traditional methods of farming results to low yielding of crops. The integration of smart agriculture using Internet of Things is an absolute solution in modernizing the traditional methods of farming. This paper aims to design and develop an IoT-driven system for high valued crop farming which automates farming processes like watering, distribution and application of fertilizer. It provides real-time monitoring and collection of information about the farm conditions like moisture, temperature, fertility of soil and level of water. Qualitative and quantitative data were gathered by means of interview and survey questionnaires which were given to Alfonso Lista, Ifugao farmers and Yaojiaxi Corporation personnel. The majority of the respondents evaluated the functionality of the system as “Fully Functional”, usability as “Very Usable”, efficiency as “Mostly Efficient” and maintainability as “Mostly Agree” based from the result of ISO standard criteria survey questionnaires. The developed prototype realized smart farming which promotes sustainable agriculture involving the integration of IoT technology into existing farming practices that definitely reduces manual work, man power and provides efficiency on the use of farming resources.
