The paper describes an Internet of Things based data driven soil monitoring system that could be
planted on varied locations of an agricultural field for tracking various essential soil health parameters
like carbon content, nitrogenous content or NPK, in general, soil moisture, temperature (both at soil
level and above surrounding environment), colour, etc. in real-time for quick and efficient management
of soil health and thus, providing an all-round mechanism for ensuring optimal soil health
quintessentially for use in agriculture-dependent domains. Some ready-to-use out-of-the-box features
of the system are weather monitoring and alert in case if harsh weather is predicted in the nearby
future, location tracking of the device, crop recommendations based on soil profile and a novel design to
mimic a scare-crow in order to attract less attention from miscreants while performing a traditionally
effective way to fend of avian attacks on the crop.
