Abstract: Internet of Things (IoT) is a worldwide network of “smart devices” that can sense and interact with their environment by means of the internet for their communication and interaction with users and other systems. Farming plays key part in the growth of a country like Ethiopia. Problems about agriculture have been continuously delaying the growth of the country. The lone answer to this difficult is modern agriculture and technology for sustainable use of water by updating the present old-style methods of farming. Hereafter the planned method targets IoT enabled remotely real-time way of monitoring and controlling suitable irrigation systems. Arduino mega founded automatic irrigation IoT system is suggested for upgrading and it will allow having a better water management and treatment on irrigation systems. Hence, exploitation of water resource again improves productivity of the crop. The proposed system is developed such that the data sent from the sensors and predict the amount of water needed. The water flow controller, pH sensor, water level monitoring sensor in the pond and temperature and soil moisture sensors are used to get information through External Wi-Fi. Finally it is been sent as a notification through mobile and computer. Based on the acquired value the proposed system calculates pH, water level, temperature and Soil Moisture required for irrigation. The major advantage of the system is the direct human intervention is avoided when implementing the system with variety of low-cost sensors and Internet of Things (IoT). The stakeholders will attain greater productivity with saving time and money
