Of seventeen (17) goals SDGs, hydroponic using IoT application is related to solving point number two (2) about zero hunger and point number thirteen (13) about climate action. This paper uses qualitative descriptive methodology which analyzes and provides points of BMC for IoT application on hydroponic. The result of this paper found that BMC is proper tool to analyze and describe business model for IoT of hydroponic.
