Recent advances in smart agriculture, facilitated by the Internet of Things (IoT), are revolutionizing traditional farming methods and transforming them into efficient practices. IoT technology has been widely applied in greenhouse management, enabling the seamless exchange and transfer of large data sets. Smart agriculture integrates information and communications technology to innovate traditional agricultural methods, promising benefits such as increased productivity, reduced costs through reduced resource use, labor efficiency, and improved product quality. Our study focuses on using sensors to monitor soil moisture, temperature, and light for optimal plant growth. An experiment was conducted on growing three types of radish plants in a smart greenhouse using an Internet of Things system and a traditional greenhouse.. The study took approximately 50 days, and the results were compared with the cultivation methods used in traditional greenhouses. The ratio of wet weight to vegetative growth was impressive and good. Meanwhile, it was lower in traditional greenhouses. As for the wet weight of the roots, the smart greenhouse significantly outperformed the traditional greenhouse. The average weight recorded in the smart home was 4.8873 grams, while in the traditional greenhouse, it was 3.2953 grams. These results confirm the potential of IoT technology to enhance agricultural productivity.
