Farmers spend a lot of time to check on their crops and manually operate irrigation systems.

An IoT hardware called “Agri-Stick” can help with optimal use of resources and precision monitoring of irrigation.

The stick can measure soil temperature and moisture and atmospheric temperature and humidity.

These values are updated in the Amazon Web Services cloud through LoRa technology with Raspberry Pi.

They can then be monitored in real time through mobile phones or desktop and enable farmers to take decisions based on data.

The sensors of the stick can be extended to measure soil nutrition, pest detection etc.

Subsequently, the stick can help prevent over and under watering, can reduce crop diseases and save a lot of money on labor costs.

The instructions to make this stick can be found here.
