Abstract :

Irrigation is one of the fundamental evils in agriculture in developing countries. Usually the farmers don’t have much awareness on how to irrigate effectively, so they tend to use more water than required for agriculture by manually. Automatic irrigation system is developed to optimize water use for agricultural crops in which the humidity sensor, temperature sensor, float sensor, flow sensor are placed on the root zone of the plants. This project is designed to overcome these problems. The algorithm which is developed with set values of these sensor and it can be programmed into PIC microcontroller to control the water flowing. With the help of embedded technology it is easy to control the environmental conditions such as soil moisture, temperature, float and flow level. These components are powered by rechargeable batteries and these are charged by photovoltaic panel to achieve full energy. This technique allows the farmers to gather the information about the soil conditions through Zig-bee technology .This project offers an optimal solution to support irrigation management that allows farmers to increase their productivity with minimum usage of water.
