Abstract

Aeroponic is a type of vertical farming. It is actually a process which means the cultivation of plants without the use of soil or minimal use of soil. In this method, the roots of the plant are suspended in the air and nutrients are sprayed in the nutrient chamber. This process can be done in both ways whether be it a semi-closed environment or closed environment. The circumstance is controlled and it requires a lot of care with respect to temperature, humidity, pH etc. In recent years, the Aeroponic system has been used mostly to have a pesticides free cultivation. Prediction says that in coming years Aeroponic will increase the yield and also the quality of crops grown. The set up for Aeroponic includes a proper monitoring and control system for water and nutrients distribution for utilizing the Aeroponic cultivation at its best. The monitoring system monitors the chamber’s parameters such as temperature & humidity whereas control system manages actuators in delivering water and nutrients. LCD will display the details of temperature and humidity and the data will be transmitted to a computer to facilitate easier monitoring. The microcontroller will help in the automation of the regulation of actuators for the distribution of water and nutrients.
