Abstract

Water is the main source of irrigation. It should be utilized in the proper way because of its shortage of land surface water and also lack of rainfall. Large amount of water is absorbed from the soil cause the land drier and it is unusable for agriculture. The manual irrigation system is cheap and effective but the unplanned use of water causes the wastage of a large amounts of water. Automatic irrigation system is the best method to solve the water scarcity problem. In this project, photo-voltaic cells are used for producing electrical energy which is used as a source for the system. Moisture sensor senses the moisture level and sent the information to the Arduino controller. When the moisture level reaches maximum level motor stops. Similarly when the moisture level reaches the minimum level and motor starts.GSM module attached to Arduino sent the SMS to the user of an automatic irrigation system.
