Since 1947, irrigation has been India's top economic development objective. Because of the enormous difference in climatic and geological factors, our nation endures severe drought in one place and flooding in another. As a result, irrigation water has become a valuable commodity. These harsh weather conditions have a significant impact on farmers.Farmers always use fertilizers and natural manures evenly throughout a large field without considering the regional land and micro-climatic conditions. Our venture proposes a hybrid and hybrid wired/remote system way to deal with run this accuracy horticulture cultivates that includes microclimate observing and zone-based water system control framework for minimal effort, proficient and viable rural ranch administration. This article demonstrated a correspondence architecture for monitoring and controlling facilities. This framework is portrayed by some appealing components, for instance, the utilization of a cross breed wired/remote correspondence framework which rearranges the arrangement of sensors and their restriction on the ground and makes the framework very adaptable.
