Nowadays, cultivation is a very important sector for producing food, fiber, and many other preferred goods through the cultivation of certain plants and the raising of domesticated animals. Cultivation adds a lot to the economy, and it full fill the obligation of nutrients and precludes people from malnutrition. In this era, the world is facing many problems in cultivation like low per hectare yield, the deficiency of irrigation facilities, waterlogging and salinity, lack of information about

The IoT sensors based technologies and modules are working with Adafruit cloud on backed. This research work aims to solve the challenges of cultivation to meet the requirements of the modern world with the help of IoT and predictive data mining techniques. This research article is written for the automation in cultivation by using IoT sensors, which detects data from the real cultivated farms and send it to Adafruit cloud using multiple technologies and protocols. Furthermore, MQTT protocol has been connected with applications for transmission of data. This protocol is providing information to farmers that which weather is best for cultivation by observing the soil nutrients. This can analyze the soil and crop instantly to inform and get the required fertilizer. A web-based application is developed by the authors that are connected with Arduino/Raspberry Pi module and GSM module. Finally, the application sends data by using technologies to the Adafruit cloud. This system will be helpful for the whole life cycle of the crop in the E-cultivation system.
