Greenhouse cultivation needs an accurate modelling and an optimised control system to ensure an adequate microclimatic condition for plants. It represents a complex task due to the high number of input factors. For this reason, an improved intermediate modelling was established under the platform of the MATLAB/Simulink environment to simulate the energy balance and the fuzzy logic controller (FLC) in order to promote a suitable microclimate through the control of the relevant actuators which

In addition, the control of the system has been improved through the integration of the Internet of things for data monitoring and recording in real time. The system was designed, prototyped, and tested in Tunis province of Tunisia. Our contribution through this work represents the implementation of the FLC on a Raspberry Pi 3, and the management of the agriculture through the use of a digital innovation (IoT). All this has allowed us not only to supervise, control and reduce the energy cost of electrical load but also to improve the productivity and quality of the greenhouse cultivation.
