Plantations represent a vital economic sector in Indonesia. However, farmers who rely on plantations for their
livelihood often encounter challenges related to air and soil quality, which can significantly impact plant growth.
Each type of plant requires specific air and soil conditions to thrive optimally, including factors such as air
temperature, humidity, soil moisture, and pH levels. To address these issues, a solution has been developed in the
form of a plantation monitoring system that can be accessed remotely and in real-time through cellular and
desktop applications. This monitoring system utilizes various sensors, including DHT11 sensors, resistive soil
moisture sensors, and soil pH sensors, all of which are meticulously calibrated with digital soil sensors. The
collected data can be conveniently monitored and managed through an Internet of Things platform, such as Blynk.
Based on the case study, the measurement system that is displayed on Blynk has a range of 0-100 °C for air
temperature, 0-100% for air humidity, 0-1000 for soil moisture, and 0-14 for soil pH.
