The paper presents the design of agriculture farm especially for the plane region which can well utilized by the farmer to sort out the scarcity of water for crop growth. The farmers are subjected with the lots of problem in agriculture like improper irrigation, selection of crops, nonavailability of weather information according to their region, the problem from pest and wild animals. Due to these problems, the suicidal case of farmers gets increase day by day. These problems can be sorted out by using IoT. Here we use Arduino Yun having inbuilt Wi-Fi to transfer and analyze data using any IoT platform likes Kaa IoT, Watson IoT, and Cayenne. We can use different IoT communication technology like Z-wave, 6LowPAN, Thread, Sigfox, and Neul to communicate various sensors to the external world according to the application. Here we simulate the design of entire sensor network used in this project using NetSim simulator and emulator software. After emulation of designed network design by taking 50 m as field size, we obtained various graphs which show throughput of each link from sensor node up to the monitoring base station, graphs of various parameter like packet transfer, collided packets, payload and overhead transmitted and battery consumed by each sensor for specified duration. Also, farmers are able to grow a health hazard free crop for the upcoming generation.
