Hydroponic is a topic that is growing every day. Hydroponic can be defined as the crop method without the use of soil. Hydroponic systems provide the capacity to produce large amount of healthy vegetables free of toxics in reduced spaces. The advantages of the hydroponics methods has included the capacity to produce large crops in less time than normal agriculture methods, free of toxics and easier to control pests. These methods bring new opportunities to explore the integration of actual sensing technologies on the agriculture. Sensing and communication technology is growing at an accelerated pace and the integration of these topics on one of the humans basic needs (Need to be fed) is fundamental. This article pretends to brings automated options for average people and/or small business to produce their own healthy food in almost every place, reduced spaces and with a minimum effort. Key Terms - Arduino, Automation, Hydroponic, Sensor.
