Build an IoT soil moisture monitor using Arduino with an IFTTT alert system Food and water are very precious and driving forces in sustaining our lives. Production in agriculture and optimal use of water both are need of the hour. Efficient irrigation watering helps in saving water, getting better plant yields, reduce dependency on fertilizers and improve crop quality. Various methods, both laboratory, and field including remote sensing are available to measure soil moisture content, but the quickest and better one is with the use of soil moisture sensor electronic devices. For successful irrigation, it is necessary to monitor soil moisture content continuously in the irrigation fields. The selection of soil moisture probes is an important criterion in measuring soil moisture at different soil moisture sensors. They have their own advantages and disadvantages. The soil moisture sensors are used intensively at present because it gives real-time readings. With that use of renewable resources like solar cells will reduce cost.
