Hydroponic System is a system in which farmers cultivate different plants without utilizing the soil. The authors have proposed IoT system that monitors and controls all parameters of hydroponic system like water level, pH, humidity and temperature through mobile application. In proposed system, the authors have used an ESP32 micro-controller that is controlled pump. The pump will draw water from a reservoir which is connected to a regular water line. If the water level of the reservoir falls

An LDR and DHT11 humidity sensor is used to control the light and temperature of the farm. In system, we also used pH sensor where pH sensor is a scientific instrument that measures the hydrogen-ion activity in water-based solutions and indicating its acidity or alkalinity expressed as pH.
