Hydroponics is the method of cultivating plants without soil. Water with oxygen and required minerals acts as the cultivation medium. Hydroponics improves the quality of crops and increases crop yield, but it requires skilled labor to monitor and control it. Hydroponics is a method of Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA), which helps close monitoring of plants for a better and successful yield where the soil may not support its maximum yield. Smart hydroponics system allows automation in the field of hydroponics to monitor and regulate growth conditions for the plant. The proposed system aims at automating the Hydroponics setup using an ESP 8266 through IoT. One main advantage of using the ESP 8266 is the reduced cost of the overall build. Though Hydroponics is efficient when it comes to the usage of resources, it can prove to be expensive with each block of the plants requiring specified electronic equipment and hardware to monitor them. One of the main aim of this project will be to ensure cost effective build that can be affordable by farmers and cultivators in order to make sure they get maximum profit and reduced wastage of resources.
