Plants on the land quickly wilt and perish due to the extended dry season, severe temperatures, heat, and glaring sunlight. This issue has impacted red lettuce, which has commercial value and high marketing prospects. Providing plants with water and fertilizer during the dry season must be efficient and exact. Excess fertilizer application pollutes the environment. In the dry season, drip irrigation with IoT-based liquid fertilizer distribution is projected to save water and fertilizer due to low discharge and high frequency. The study's goal is to provide effective autonomous distribution of water and fertilizer to red lettuce plants in order to achieve precision environmentally friendly agriculture. A split-plot design with a main plot and subplots was used to structure the research. Each treatment in one replication contained 5 plant samples, for a total of 60 plants in this study, with weekly watering and fertilization. The findings show that an IoT-based automatic water supply and drip fertilization system can precisely regulate the distribution of water and fertilizer to red lettuce plants, thereby improving water efficiency, farmer energy efficiency, and environmental friendliness.
