Abstract: Indian economy majorly depends on the agriculture sector hence it is known as the backbone of India. Here agriculture segment accounts for 18% of India’s GDP and is providing employment to 50% of the country workforce. The main aim of this work is to reduce the manual monitoring of soil testing and plant irrigation and help farmers in increasing the agricultural production. The testing of soil is done through various sensors and based on the data received the farmers can cultivate the appropriate crop that is suitable for soil. Detection of plant’s diseases is done through image processing technique. And also includes pest detection and control by using Acoustic sensor and we make use of Ultrasonic sound emitter to keep the pests away from destroying the crops. It alerts farmers through a message. All the information is sent to IBM Bluemix Cloud by ZigBee protocol. A direct communication link is set up between farmers and the consumers without the involvement of any middleman via mobile app.
