IoT is a reflective system of connecting the real-world objects that are accessed via the network. Sensors are involved for the data collection, in which the objects are having their own IP address and having the ability to access and transmit the resources through the Internet without manual performance. It is an architectural framework that offers integration and transfers the information between the computational devices. Its application areas are wide spread across smart homes, wearables, automation of vehicles, industrial Internet, smart cities, smart agriculture, smart retail, energy engagement, poultry and farming. In intelligent agriculture circumstances, to control the progress and to attain better yield in harvests are the primary focuses of this research work. The objective is to present new methodologies for the smart agricultural system, for monitoring and tracking, manufacturing of crops, import and export process, sales details, etc. By implementing the IoT-based smart sensors for the crop management, one can efficiently conquer the impulse of difficult and changing climate, the geographical disability, natural calamity, plagues and ailments about the crop. This research work proposes a cloud platform for smart agriculture data with wireless sensor network based on IOT. In cloud, intelligent production information is stored securely and made open for the authorized users.
