Agriculture is the backbone of Indian economy. About 50% of Indian population depending on agriculture sector to meet their day-to-day expenses. The current irrigation system practiced in India is sprinkler water irrigation, tank water irrigation, inundation irrigation, etc. these methods are less efficient as they do not scatter to the requirement of the moisture level of the soil and do not make efficient use of water resources. In the future, as population increases, demand for food crops increases, which eventually results in depending on water resource on a large scale. The electricity distribution in India is poorly organized and very unsettled. Currently, India requires technological up gradation to meet the demand for irrigation purpose. The IOT based Modern Farming enables efficient utilization of water as the soil is constantly monitored with the help of moisture sensor and based on the readings the crop is irrigated with the help of a motor. The power is supplied through the DC Adapter/battery12V. All this can be achieved using IOT technology. The main ideology behind this project is to reduce human intervention and efficiently make use of water and electricity. This is made possible by sending received data to the android device using Bluetooth Module. The entire system is controlled and executed by the Arduino UNO Board microcontroller
