The world’s population depends mainly upon agriculture. But the agricultural lands are being affected due to the extension of urban society into rural areas. Hence, the yield of crop has been decreasing year by year. Farmers have to bear huge financial loss because of wrong prediction of weather. In this context, the sensor technology is used for automatic detection of the abnormal environmental parameters inside the greenhouse. The growth of crop in greenhouse depends on wind, temperature, humidity and other parameters. Accurate measurement is important and adjusts these parameters according to the weather. This paper focuses on the development in the agricultural sector with minimum water usage and the utilization of the solar energy. These parameters are measured with the help of sensors. These measured parameters are given as input to the microcontroller which was programmed with reference values of a particular crop and are compared. The output of the microcontroller is given to the hardware unit for their further functioning according to the environment. To give more importance to conservation of energy, solar energy is used. The solar panel with sun tracker is also designed to increase the efficiency. A greenhouse environment parameters monitoring system based on wireless communication technology. The outputs of the sensors were given to Arduino UNO microcontroller. The output of the Arduino was given to the control unit. The control unit changes the adjustments in green house.
