Abstract

Agriculture in India is the means of livelihood of almost two thirds of the work force in the country. It has always been India’s most important economic sector. The increase in post-independence agricultural production has been brought about by bringing additional area under cultivation, extension of irrigation facilities, use of better seeds, better techniques, water management and plant protection. The life of a farmer goes beyond tilling and yielding crops. The farmer should be alert to water the fields at regular intervals of time to obtain good results. This paper provides an easy and efficient technique to water the fields whenever the water is required in the field, without going to the field or to the pump set. This system is entirely an automated product. The set up consists of Micro-Controller, GSM serves as a feedback whether the motor is ON/OFF under required condition. Microcontroller is an advanced version of microprocessors and forms the heart of the system.
