With industrialization and continuously evolving climatic conditions, the urge to practice agriculture with the fusion of technology has become a necessity. In the era of Internet of Things where all eyes are witnessing the evolution of machine to machine interaction, there is also a lack of clarity in considering the type of protocol to be used in building a particular system like Green House. A green house is a regulated environment for agriculture where critical parameters like temperature, light, humidity, ph level of soil can be monitored with the help of sensor systems using Internet of Things protocols. Message Queue Telemetry Transfer protocol was chosen over Constrained Application Protocol and Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol in the experiment conducted in terms of its light weight transmission, resource consumption and effectively providing the different quality of services to detect the temperature and humidity as well as the gas leaks encountered in a greenhouse environment.
