Abstract—With more and more urbanization, more educated population is exploring farming in a smart way with maximized production and quality yields by deploying modern technologies. The advanced technology trends permit this in efficient ways and cost-effective way. Deployment of technologies to understand, monitor and control the needs of the crop is the key to the smart farming which is termed as greenhouse farming or urban farming [1]. The combination of sensor, signal processing, control, communication and networking technologies are back bones of new smart farming. With these it is possible to monitor both the physical and environmental parameters, learn the optimized set of them needed for the particular flower/vegetable/crop and control them for better yield. This Paper discusses WSN based mix of technologies as adopted to greenhouse farming for growing bell pepper/capsicum by monitoring and controlling temperature, humidity, soil moisture and light parameters. With this solution, it was possible to achieve 3-4 times higher yield in bell pepper/capsicum than that of outdoor cultivation in a short-term cycle. Novelty of this system also lies in learning the right requirements for the crop and better utilization of the same for future cycles of farming.
