Abstract: Agriculture is the most important sector of economy, contributing major employment in the country and helping to develop the industry development with 16 percent of the national GDP growth and improving the life of people. Agriculture provides food, fiber, fuel, furniture, raw materials, a free fare and fresh environment, and plenteous nourishment for driving out starvation. But in the present scenario, the manual practices being followed by the farmers in our country are posing a huge threat to the sustenance of this sector. There is a need to incorporate automated system for various agricultural activities like irrigation, soil monitoring, harvesting and weather monitoring. Herein, we have created a Smart IoT based agriculture field monitoring and automatic field controlling agricultural storage system. The objective of any IOT system is to develop a smart automation system (smart home, smart IoT agriculture, smart monitor health, smart easy transport, etc.) using IoT technologies such as wireless sensors, embedded control devices and wireless communication protocols. We hereby present an IoT system interconnected with wireless devices which can sense the field and send the data to assigned system and finally the results can be noted with proper arrangements. Wireless sensors are used to sense the field and monitor the field with various aspects controlled manually and could be automated based on the requirement. In this paper we shall see that this IoT system shall not directly connect every device with the Internet but will connect through VPS integrated IoT Gateway. We propose a system that shall monitor and control the moisture level in the field soil and this real time data will be transmitted to the client to provide security for the farmland and avoid animal threats. The proposed smart IoT system will also monitor the growth of the trees.
