Abstract: Agriculture is the backbone of our country. Our agriculture depends on monsoon. Hence agriculture production is very less. In case the monsoons were good, production rate is good and vice versa. Therefore there is a need for the healthy growth of cultivating agricultural crops. It is possible by the implementation of monitoring and controlling of greenhouse system. We developed a greenhouse environment which could grow these seasonal plants for the whole year by controlling several climatic conditions like light, temperature, humidity and soil moisture. The main of objective of our research is to create GSM based system that reacts and controls the weather inside a greenhouse. Working on a response system which changes with the change in climatic condition on four parameters Humidity, Soil Moisture, Light and Temperature. In this research, the parameters are controlled by using microcontroller which is connected to Wi-Fi module. By the use of Wi-Fi module, data can transferred to wide range of distances at high data rates compared to other modules. If any variations occurs in these four parameters which reaches above the threshold level, accordingly it can be controlled by using sprayer, pump, bulb and fan.
