In India large percentage of population depends on agriculture. Agriculture techniques improve day by day. Wireless sensor used in agriculture has importance in modern agriculture. The use of wireless sensors in various agriculture sectors have huge positive impact on crops, helps in increasing yield and saving cost of operation. Mushroom industry is new and small scaled as compare to other agriculture industry in India. The white button mushroom is very popular throughout the world and is the most important mushroom of commercial significance in India. It can be successfully cultivated in places where the environmental conditions are favorable but it is cultivated in North India in winter seasons due to the favorable conditions. The optimum temperature for mycelia growth is 22°C- 25°C and that for fruit body formation 14°C -18°C and a high percentage of relative humidity. The mushroom cultivation rooms should have facilities for temperature control and pasteurization processes. The main aim of this paper is to minimize the human care needed for the mushroom plant by automating the mushroom production plant and monitor the crop room environment status. With the introduction of IoT, Agriculture industries also upgraded. In this thesis presents an environmental monitoring and controlling system to monitor and control the environmental conditions in a mushroom farm. It enables user to monitor temperature, humidity, carbon dioxide concentration and light intensity in a mushroom farm on an android device by using thing Speak online platform. The controller used in the sensors station which ensures that the plant parameters stay within pre-defined values as determined and set by the user is the Arduino prototyping platform. The current status of parameters is transmitted to the remote monitoring station via a pair of low power ESP8266 as Wi-Fi modem. The codes for the controller were written in the Arduino programming language, debugged, compiled, and burnt into the microcontroller using the Arduino integrated development environment (IDE).
