Abstract :

An intention of this topic is to describe the design and implementation of a low-cost multi-mode control for an irrigation system. Irrigation by help of freshwater resources in agricultural areas has a crucial importance. The system uses soil water potential measures, the weather condition parameters and the data provided by the user to decide when and how much water to apply to the irrigated field. The soil moisture contents and the climatic parameters are monitored by a controllerbased data acquisition and distribution controller system. Full circuit and program codes were implemented to verify system operation. Because of highly increasing demand for freshwater, maximum use of water resources has been provided with greater extent by automation technology and its apparatus such as solar power devices, drip irrigation, sensors and remote control. Traditional instrumentation depends on discrete and wired solutions, which represents many difficulties on measuring and control systems especially over the large geographical areas. This topic describes an application of a WSN for low-cost wireless controlled irrigation solution and real time monitoring of water content of soil. Data acquisition is performed by using solar powered wireless acquisition stations for the purpose of control of valves for irrigation. The designed system has 3 units namely: Base Station Unit (BSU), Valve Unit (VU) and Sensor Unit (SU). The obtained irrigation system not only prevents the moisture stress of trees and salification, but also gives an efficient use of fresh water resource. In addition, the developed system removes the need for workmanship for flooding irrigation.
