Abstract: Farming has been the most important thing since the neanderthal age. Food, shelter and clothes are the basic that a person needs and farming is the root to all. In Early days people used simple and manual tools to grow a crop, such as sticks, hoes, sickle to plant and harvest crops. A few years back farming was a labour-intensive process. Farmers often had to work for long hours and any kind of irregularities in the atmosphere can ruin everything. But later, it became quiet a relief to the farmers, with all those automation techniques, machines, almost half of the work can be done within minutes.

Although that too had a lot of efforts in it, still improper rain can damage the yields and the prices could go high. The solution for that is IoT. With the help of IoT and its sensors the amount of water required in the field can be checked and start the irrigation with just one click. With IoT a farmer can just supervise his farm and IoT sensors can do the rest of the work.

A reference paper that we took into consideration discusses a system that combines software and hardware to allow farmers to monitor and control various aspects of their fields in real-time. The focus is on weather stations and mobile data logging for monitoring, and the relationship between these technologies and Smart IoT-based farm monitoring is explored. In the past, farming has seen the advent of grain elevators, mechanized ploughers, chemical fertilizers, and gas-powered tractors, while the use of satellites for planning tasks became prevalent in the late 1900s. Looking forward, IoT is poised to revolutionize farming and become a new standard in the field, with smart farming becoming increasingly promising thanks to technological advancements in automation.
