Internet of Things (IoT) is an advanced technology for monitoring and controlling device anywhere in the world. It can connect devices with living things. Agriculture is one of the major sectors which contribute a lot to the financial of India and to get quality product, proper irrigation has to be performed, to reduce man power using modern technology of internet of things IoT in today’s life. Soil moisture is an integral part of plant life, which directly affects crop growth and yield, as well as irrigation scheduling. This system will be a substitute to traditional farming method. We will develop such a system that will help a farmer to know his field status in his home or he may be residing in any part of the world. It proposes an automatic irrigation system for the agricultural lands. Currently the automation is one of the important roles in the human life. It is not only provides comfort but also efficiency and time saving. So here it is also designs a smart irrigation technology by using raspberry pi and connecting to the weather API. Raspberry-pi is the main heart of the whole system. An automated irrigation system was developed to optimize water use for agricultural crops. Automation allows us to control appliances automatically. The objectives of this to control the water motor automatically, To monitor the soil, water level using weather API.A robotized irrigation system framework might have been created should streamline water utilize to agriculture crops. Mechanization permits us with control appliances naturally. Those targets for this on control those water motor naturally monitor the soil, water level utilizing weather API In previously we are using the soil moisture control by using some set of sensors by this water is pumping continuously even though it is by this over flow of the water is taken place to overcome this problem we are using the cloud monitoring system based on the weather conditions.
