Present day Soil monitoring systems make use of PC based servers and it is needed to interface the appliances to these PCs for the purpose of monitoring and controlling the governed parameters. Among the different technologies for crop monitoring, Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are recognized as a powerful one to collect and process data in the agricultural domain with low-cost and low-energy consumption. Agriculture and farming is one of the industries which have recently diverted their attention to WSN, seeking this cost effective technology to improve its production and enhance agriculture yield standard. The proposed system is hardware as well as software based which will automatically control the parameters of the soil. Further the system is expected to determine the environmental value and then after classifying, it needs to decide which action to be performed for controlling. The action to be performed for controlling the environment depends on the threshold value.
