This research is to design and develop a system for the environmental monitoring and tracking of Sriracha pineapple farmers and community enterprises in Chonburi province. The objective of this research is to study, collect and analyze data on climate change in the Sriracha pineapple farms in Chonburi province by storing data on a cloud platform and designing and constructing a system to monitor the environment in the pineapple farms. To be used as a standard that well practice in the production system on the farm. Applied research is focused on the Internet of Things technology to support the operation of the control of planting plots as well as data analysis on suitable environments for growing pineapple. Furthermore, through the application notification, users can control the operation and be aware of environmental information in the plant. As a result, the production process is more efficient and accurate. We installed and tested the efficiency of the equipment and application in farms. The results showed that data on the growth of pineapple from June to August, 2022, where the use of water resources is reduced, provides a relatively good and complete growth rate with growth characteristics consisting of the D-leaf at 1.62, leaf width at 8.16, bush size at 3.92, and bush height at 8.66 percent, respectively, when compared with the pineapple tree without a data control. In addition, we are a storage environment related to the growing of pineapple as the following data: temperature of 29.60 percent, humidity of 72.35 percent, soil moisture of 63.07 percent, intensity of 51.27 percent, and soil fertilizer of 5.60, respectively.
