India has larger agricultural lands but it does not cross the world’s standard in plant productivity. There are many reasons for low plant yield. To improve the productivity, technological support system for agriculture is essential. This paper presents an integrated farm monitoring system by using Smartphone application and Internet of Things. Using this system, farmers can remotely monitor farm for soil moisture, leaf wetness duration, pH level in the soil, temperature and humidity in the environment. The system quickly analyses the weather and soil conditions in a particular area where the plant is present and gives new insights to manipulate the decision making. The system is deployed and tested in fields of Islampur, Maharashtra. The proposed tool is cost effective and productive system for farmers.
