In today’s urban life where we have limited space for our gardens and limited time to monitor the needs for the growing organic greens, a perfect solution would be an Automated IOT (Internet of Things) based Terrace Model. This can certainly provide the best performance, since it may employ decentralized data processing to make important decisions in greens management in a smart manner. This automated system helps in ploughing the soil, sowing seeds, automatic watering to control the moisture level in the soil, observe the live streaming of greens growth in our smart phones until harvesting. It also ensures that Organic Greens receive ideal attention, best agricultural conditions, natural fertilizers and compost (derived from kitchen waste) without any human intervention. This will encourage in growing our own organic greens in an automated way within limited space. In low-expense, this sustainable system can perform plowing of the soil, injecting the seed’s, irrigation process along with the live streaming of plants. In addition to this, the end-user can monitor the parameters recorded by the sensors such as soil moisture level, humidity value, temperature level etc. The user will get messages about which plants need to be growing based on the soil conditions along with that they get a message about the intruder. The entire data about the sensors and the system will be stored in the database and time to time modified values will be updated. The modular system will reduce the human effort, labor cost, power consumption, water usage etc. The user can grow different species of leafy vegetables that can be easily maintained and monitored without any effort.
