Indian floriculture industry has grown by multiple folds in the past decade and has become one of the top ten leading producers of varieties of flower production. This tremendous growth of floriculture industry has proportionally also contributed to the depletion of environmental system. The paper proposes a technology-based fertilizer application infrastructure has been designed for an optimal growth of plants under a controlled usage of fertilizers. The model assures a fertigation process with reduced intervals of fertilization and a reduced consumption of water. A technology for fertilizer application infrastructure is based on Internet of Things (IoT) that helps to achieve an optimal growth of plants under a controlled usage of fertilizers and a promised environmental sustainability.
