The lecturers did the research about “Wireless Control System for Plant Nursery via Android”
Hydroponics is a form of gardening that uses no soil, but instead grows plants in a solution of nutrients mixed with water. The basic hydroponic setup, researchers need meters to test the Electrical Conductivity (EC) and Potential of Hydrogen ion (pH) of the water, as well as the temperature and relative humidity of the room. There are some combination meters available that will test the EC, pH, and water temperature. Lighting is also important to hydroponics system. In direct sunlight, there infrared rays and ultraviolet rays which has an impact on Photosynthesis of plants in a period of time.
Hydroponics Plant Nursery project is launched in order to be a tool for Agricultural 4.0 Era, it supports farmers from its wireless control system which requires on one hand less labor costs and timing and on the other hand it creates more time management and product.
