Water deficits reduce plant growth. Moisture stress affects the development of plant organs, which in turn can have very profound effects on plant growth. Initiation and differentiation of vegetative and reproductive organs, as well as cell division and cell enlargement, are very sensitive to water stress. The size of the vegetative organs in part determines the yield of grain crops, and therefore the yield is often determined before heading or flowering. Factors that determine the size of plant vegetative organs are many, and they are interrelated in a complex manner. Environmental factors rank high among those that determine vegetative growth, and among these environmental factors, nitrogen, soil temperature, and soil water play key roles. In this paper, we present a sensor-cloud based precision agriculture for intelligent water management for effective productivity in agriculture.
