The Internet of Things (IoT) is a collection of interconnected devices with self-configuring capabilities. Each aspect of the average person's daily life has been changed by the Internet of Things (IoT), which has made everything smart and intelligent. This paper proposes an Internet of Things (IoT)-based smart irrigation system for monitoring and managing field’s environment in real-time using cloud computing and various sensors connected with microcontroller. The system aims to reduce the time and energy of farmers by automating the process of monitoring field conditions and show the real-time measurement on mobile application and web application. The collected data is stored in the cloud and processed to facilitate automation through IoT devices. The results of the experimentation include temperature (DHT-11), humidity (DHT-11), soil moisture, water pump, fertilizer management (pH meter), and raindrop monitor. The system performs decision-making analysis with the interaction of the farmer and has the potential to increase crop productivity and reduce wastage of resources in agriculture sector.
