Agriculture is the main occupation of our country and it plays a vital role in our country. Using too much of fertilizers may lead to the inferior quality of the crop production. So the measurement of soil nutrients is greatly required for better plant growth. Determining the amount of nutrients in the soil is the key function. pH value is also one of the most important and informative soil parameter to detect the soil fertility and it is measured to identify the soil fertility. In the proposed system, it determines the crops which are suitable for the particular soil type. It will analyze moisture content, temperature and humidity in soil at real time and it will also suggest the crops based on determined PH of soil. This system is proposed to help the farmers to increase the production and the suggestions are made through the mobile application.
