Arduino Based Automation in The Soilless Agriculture
In this study, greenhouse automation was performed in a hydroponic environment using Arduino. The temperature of water, EC (electrical conductivity) value of the nutrient solution in the hydroponic environment, which are the parameters that affect the development process of plants from their planting into the stand in the created greenhouse environment up to the time of collecting the products, were kept under control. Regarding these parameters, while the temperature of thewater was changed by the aquarium heater, the EC (electrical conductivity) value in the hydroponic environment was set by means of automation by proportioning the nutrient kits.In this application performed, it was aimed to change farmer's perspective on modern agriculture and accelerate the economic and agricultural development by contributing to the spread of modern agriculture.
