Abstract : The last two decades of the Information Age have been characterized by widespread proliferation of the Internet of things (IoT) technology. Besides diverse applications in various consumer, industrial, agriculture, and health care, IoT has enabled solutions for better management of natural resources. This paper illustrates the productive use of the IoT concept to automate the irrigation of vermicompost, encompassing three prime domains—waste management, smart irrigation, and (mobile) app. The soil moisture content and temperature of the compost bed are critical factors that delimit the earthworms’ life expectancy. This paper includes an intelligent monitoring system for effective irrigation of the compost bed, at precise time intervals. The irrigation status and the compost bed's moisture content can be monitored ubiquitously through the Amrita Sparsham mobile application software, minimizing human intervention, facilitating water conservation. Thus, the multipurpose solution is the convergence of Amrita waste management through vermicompost and the automated smart irrigation system monitored using Amrita Sparsham mobile application.
