Abstract: The current agricultural practices need to intensify the rate of food crop production for the rate of population growth with available resources. This paper focuses on measuring the water content in soil and crop growth monitoring using Raspberry Pi. The water level required for agriculture purpose is analyzed using soil moisture sensor. Optical devices like camera capture the field and automatic edge detection will be performed and viewed on the remote server. Moisture level and crop growth level can be viewed on the web browser. The water level will be measured and if it is found less than the actual requirement, it will be corrected manually. In edge detection process, if any disturbance is found, the manual inspection will be carried out to remove the disturbance.
