A producer who controls irrigation using a smartphone. A firebase that uses weather data to predict when to water crops. Sensors that read how much water is in the soil. From water availability and unpredictable weather patterns to regulations from outside entities, it can be a challenge to irrigate crops. Nowadays IoT has different solutions to overcome with this kind of problem. The particular research targeted successfully by development effected system using NodeMCU, Sensors, firebase, and

The tool works by helping farmers with limited irrigation capacity determine the best time to water their crops. The main ai m of automating the system is to provide a certain amount of water required by crops by monitoring the moisture of soil and surrounding temperature. This obtains with the help of sensors and NodeMCU for interfacing their values. The values are displayed on a mobile application in real-time using Google's firebase. Irrigation using IoT is a key component of precision agriculture. By changing manual irrigation with automatic valves and systems reduces the human error. Farmer can monitor his crop yield from anywhere at any time.
