IOT Based Soil Tester

Authors(5) :-Dr. Gayatri Phade , Rudra Shinde, Aniket Shiledar, Prasad Tiwari, Rohit Garje

Indian economy is mainly based on agriculture, still we are not able to make most favourable, commercial and sustainable use of our land resources. The main reason is the lack of knowledge regarding the soil analysis for the growth of crops. Agriculture is based on two important aspects i.e. weather and soil, as weather cannot be controlled, quality of soil can be analysed by soil testing. In every state, around 9 to 10 lakh soil samples have been received in labs and it is very difficult to test all the soil samples at a time by the labs. It takes more time to generate test reports. Hence there is need of soil analysis to be made available to the farmer. According to agriculture university survey, problem like infertility of soil increasing day by day because of excess use of chemical fertilizers. Farmers have inadequate knowledge of quality fertilizers to be used for soil.
