Hydroponics means growing plants without soil. As the quality of production in farming is decreases day by day, everyone demands nutrient rich food, but this demand cannot be fulfilled by using our traditional farming method. This method undergoes many problems. Some of them are availability of land and labor; another one is increased use of fertilizers which can affect quality of crop that in turn can affect the ability of soil fertilization. With poor soil fertility, the farmer can face many problems. He did not get production in huge quantity also the crop we will get is not nutrient rich. Other problems in traditional farming are frequent weather changes, rise in temperature, water pollution, etc. Under this condition, it will be very difficult in the future to grow a crop that will feed the entire population using traditional agriculture. We are using IOT technology which is very helpful to connect objects to the Internet for automation in farming. Hydroponics is an interesting new platform that requires less area for plantation and can produce more product than the conventional farming.
