Proliferation of technologies can strengthen agriculture field for assessment of agriculture-related information such as water level, productivity of crops, soil quality, and proper fertilizers as per soil type. In fact, farmers can remotely access, receive updates of weather forecasts, and monitor their land through mobiles and computers. Furthermore, there is also a need to enhance skills and knowledge of farmers in harvesting so that excessive use of pesticides and fertilizers should not affect natural ecosystems and quality of food products as well. Thus, proper awareness of important information in agriculture, such as soil forecasting and weather forecasting, is one of few common problems for nationwide Indian farmers. For transformation of traditional agriculture to smart agriculture, the Internet of things (IoT) plays a crucial role in providing information to farmers about their agriculture fields. Monitoring of environmental factors can be done with the help of IoT-based devices and related environment. This chapter initially critically analyzes, assesses, and addresses the existing problems related to agriculture, and then, integration of sensor technology and its integration with the IoT have been studied and reviewed based on real-life existing problems. Furthermore, this attempt presents a solution for sustaining soil quality in varying weather conditions so that issues related to sufficient knowledge about the soil can be optimized.
