Abstract: Agriculture is said to be the fundamental source of income for the developing nations. The better crop yield obtained by a farmer not only gives better prosperity for his family but also the nation. Our paper describes a product that we developed to help the farmers to produce a better yield. The Product is designed in a way to provide the data of moisture and temperature across various parts of the field. The temperature of the soil indirectly affects the water, nutrition uptake and root growth of the soil. The data of moisture and temperature are taken from various parts of the field and pushed to the cloud. The data can be viewed through the mobile application that we developed. This application not only exhibits data but rather it also allows the user to control the product without getting in physical contact with it. The device required the internet to work but we provide the user with an alternative switch by that they can turn the device to normal mode in which the data are sent through normal text messages to the user's mobile phone.
