Automatic Greenhouse Monitoring And Controlling System Using PLC
Modern agriculture uses representative model of greenhouse system. The production of the crop plants is
independent of geographic locations and the time of the year. The greenhouse also provides shelter for the plants, protects
them from harsh weather conditions, insects and diseases. It allows the plants to grow under optimum conditions, which
maximizes the growth potential of the plants. The quality and productivity of the crop plants is highly dependent on the
management quality and a good management scheme is defined by the quality of the information gathered from the
greenhouse environment. The main aim of our work is to design an automated greenhouse monitoring and controlling
system which is purely sensor based and can manage everything without human interference. By using the output signals
given by different sensors PLC will maintain the appropriate conditions for the proper growth of plants in greenhouse.
