Abstract: Water is a very valuable and stimulating force for irrigation. The Optimum usage of water is an hourly requirement. Efficient irrigation helps to conserve water, increase plant yields, reduce fertilizer reliance, and improve the quality of crops. Various techniques are available to measure soil moisture content, both laboratory and field, including remote sensing, but the fastest and better one is with the use of soil moisture sensor electronic devices. The range of soil moisture sensors has its own benefits and drawbacks. The goal of this work is to design and develop a module for the measurement of soil moisture and temperature levels, as well as ambient temperature and humidity by using frequency concepts. The sensor is made of a corrosion resistant element and it is rugged, battery operated, low power and long range sensor using IoT. A “GND BLE Mobile Application (gSense100)” has been developed, which includes everything related to the BLE technology and soil moisture sensor, where the app uses BLE technology to transmit all sensor values to the consumer. 
Keywords: BLE, BLE technology, GSense100.
