Mostly, farmers spent most of their time to supervise wide area of planting and it exhausted. The objective of this project is to develop an advanced monitoring system. In this paper, an attempt has been made by using Interactive Graphical Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) System (IGSS) software and Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) which integrate with a fertigation system to solve the problem. The SCADA monitoring system is built based on Graphical User Interface (GUI) by using IGSS software. As a result, the project is able to control and supervise the fertigation system prototype process smoothly. The project operates in two conditions which indicate the water level in tank and detect the humidity in the soil, thus the user can supervise their plant without perforce to the site of planting area. It can support two ways communication system, which is the main uniqueness and the special features of the project compared to today’s technology. The project can be improved by using the analog type device, where user can see a real time data on screen through supervised mode. The idea of making current project to online is also one of the improvements that can be made.
