In contrast to modern figures, which indicate that around 50% of the population is employed in the irrigation sector and that, overall, about 70% of Bangladeshis rely on agriculture for their livelihood; agriculture has long been considered one of the country's primary occupations. According to a survey, a lack of water results in the waste of about 20% of agricultural land, which is then turned into a desert area for power generation. Agriculture in the majority of poor nations, like Bangladesh, depends heavily on conventional energy sources to power the motors and pumps, which causes our land to become a desert because the irrigated fields lack access to power consumption. The aim of the research scenario is focused on IoT based operating, monitoring and controlling system for temperature, humidity and soil moisture in land area with effective and efficient utilization of renewable resources which is abundantly available such as solar energy. Internet of things (IoT) is the most evolving, promising technology which enables agricultural farms to automatically maintain and monitor with less human participation. The proposed system utilizes a single board system-on-a-chip controller which has built-in WiFi connectivity with ESP8266 module and connections to a solar cell to provide the required operating power, monitoring and controlling part is used by Blynk cloud app system. The controller reads the field soil moisture, humidity, and temperature sensors, and outputs appropriate actuation command signals to operate irrigation pumps. As compared with the other existing works the proposed system delivers a smart output with less power consumption.
