The absence of an increase in the interest of the young population to enter the agricultural sector has an impact on the amount of food production each year. This happens because young people think that the farming profession is not promising for survival. One of the developments that can attract the interest of young people is by utilizing technology such as smart farming. This paper proposes initial modeling before implementing smart farming by analyzing the characteristics of the object to be planted. The purpose of this paper is to optimize plant growth and development to increase the potential of agricultural production according to the surrounding environment. The plants analyzed included eggplant, cherry tomatoes, guava, citrus, and cucumbers. The parameters studied were temperature and soil moisture in plants. The test results found that cherry tomatoes and cucumbers are not suitable if planted in the Surabaya city environment because they require low temperatures as a condition for growing. Meanwhile, eggplant, guava, and citrus plants, if placed in a place exposed to direct sunlight, will cause the soil moisture to decrease, so that the plants do not grow optimally.
Key words: Smart Farming / Initial Modeling / Temperature / Humidity
