The purpose of this work is to design and develop an agricultural monitoring system using Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) to increase productivity and quality of chili farming remotely. Temperature and humidity levels are the most important factors for productivity, growth, and quality of chili plant in agriculture. It is necessary that these are to be observed all the time in real time mode. The farmers or the agriculture experts can observe the measurements through the website or an android app simultaneously. The system will be immediately intimated to the farmer in detection of any critical changes occurs in one of the measurements. Which would helps the farmer to know about the possible disease range. With the continuous monitoring of many environmental parameters, the grower can analyze an optimal environmental conditions to achieve maximum crop productiveness and to save remarkable energy.
