Abstract: India being an agricultural country needs some innovation in the field of agriculture. Now a day?s the demand for farm products increasing due to population growth and limited resources for irrigation. The water has made the irrigation management system an important element of agricultural activity. Traditional methods of irrigation not only require water in quantity but the percentage of water wastage is also high. This paper describes the wireless technology - based design and implementation of a site - specific crop management system (SSCMS). The SSCMS involves the installation of customized sensor nodes at multiple sites within the farming land, each node incorporates very useful features such as multi - layer soil moisture content sensing, soil temperature, PH levels sensing, and ambient temperature, humidity, ambient light intensity monitoring. Monitoring these parameters is the most vital aspects of agricultural productivity and maintenance of field crops. Various diseases caused improper maintenance of some climatological conditions. Moreover, monitoring appropriate environmental parameters required for the high yield of crop production on given farmland among different technology for crop monitoring wireless sensor network processes the data in the agriculture domain with low cost and low energy power. This cost - effective technology improves its production and enhances agricultural yield.
