Since blockchain is the central technology of bitcoin, block chain has gained a lot of attention in recent years. Its applications are expanding in a variety of fields, including Internet of Things (IoT) defense, banking, industries, and medical centre. Furthermore, IoT has grown in popularity because of its widespread usage in smart homes and urban developments around the world. This paper presents the design of an automated system for a greenhouse focusing mainly on Hydroponics. Along with the design, the purpose of this study is monitoring, control, and visualization of the data. This project addresses some of the issues in traditional farming. Issues like incapability of agriculture due to small and fragmented land holdings, risk in using manures and pesticides, and lack of mechanization. The segments of this project include the main module (referred to as AGMS), the cloud, and the end user. The data visualization is done through a website that will acquire it from a Wi-Fi module through APIs. The study also includes social media alerts to platforms like Twitter and mail.
