MICROCONTROLLER-BASED VERTICAL FARMING AUTOMATION SYSTEM
Keywords:Robotization, Microcontroller, Vertical cultivating
Food is an essential need of life. It is how man is fed and reinforced to complete his everyday exercises. The requirement for nourishment for the upkeep of man has set horticulture in charge of man's issues on the planet. With a quickly expanding populace on the planet, man has imagined more up-to-date and inventive ways of developing yields. This development is gathered in country areas of nations all over the planet; yet with the monstrous urbanization occurring in this present reality, it is turning out to be progressively hard to have good horticultural produce that will cook for the gigantic populace. Accepting Nigeria as contextual analysis, the expanded urbanization has put a gigantic expectation ashore, energy and water assets inside the metropolitan region of the country. The larger part of the food eaten in the metropolitan regions is developed in the provincial regions. This framework anyway requires longer transportation times from the provincial areas to metropolitan regions, leading to pollution and deterioration. This examination paper gives an answer in which food harvests can be developed effectively in the metropolitan regions by planting in upward stacked layers to save space and utilize negligible energy and water for water systems.
