The Technology of the Internet of Things (IoT)offers anintelligent learning mechanism among internet-connected physical objects for serving billions of users worldwide.Internet of Things in combination with computing technologies Cloud, Fog, and Edge is becoming an exciting area among technology giants, business communities, and researchers with awide-ranging set of applications in different domains. Internet of things possesses the capability and capacity in achieving sustainable growth and provided a competent and structured approach for the observation of crops in the field with the assistance of sensors. The outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic leads to the nationwide shutdown which further leads the serious unsolicited effects for farmers and the transport of agriculture commodities and production supply chains. Farming is the largest livelihood provider in many countries and the role of the Internet of things (IoT) for Crop monitoring is vital in the Covid-19 situation. The outbreak of Crop disease is a prone threat to fruitful production, as abundant diseases spoil the crop production to a large extent due to Lockdown situations, unawareness about crop growth, and insufficient utilization of technology in Farming fields. The IoT-based technology needs to collect a huge amount of information in the farming field and transferring data to the cloud server for disease classification and recognition is time-consuming and causing delays to diagnosis and treatment. This paper proposes an IoT-based framework for crop disease monitoring system with the assistant of fog computing, so that it will carry out timely monitoring of disease in crop with minimal delay.
