Abstract

In this fast-growing technology, agriculture sector in India is one of the domains where we have observed slow adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions. Unavailability, expensive seasonal labour and inadequate water resources are one of the major problems faced by Indian agriculture. Use of costly industrial standard sensors, energy utilization and placement of sensors also poses a greater problem for adoption of IoT solutions. This paper proposes an IoT-based framework and a strategy for placement of the optimal number of sensors and optimal utilization of battery to address the mentioned issues. Framework adopts NodeMCU and moisture sensor that addresses communication and water scarcity problems. We are using ThingSpeak cloud to store and process the sensor data. Results demonstrate the effectiveness of our strategies and proposed IoT framework.
