Abstract

Agriculture plays a key role in the life of farmers. So a proper amount of water and power supply is required for efficient plant growth. So here we have automatic plant irrigation system which consists of solar modules, various sensors etc. Solar modules are devices that cleanly convert sunlight into electricity and offer a practical solution to the problem of power generation in remote areas. Solar power is used as only the source of power to control the overall system. Sensors are placed on the paddy field and these sensors continuously sense the water level and give the message to the farmer informing the water level. Without visiting the paddy fields, farmers can get the information about the water level. Using an automatic system helps the farmer to ON/OFF the motor without his physical presence in the field. This system has real time sensing and control of an irrigation system. When the condition of water in the agricultural farm is abnormal then the system automatically switches OFF. Based on the soil moisture, through relay the pumping motor will be automatically switch on or off which saves the water and on the other hand the plant can get most appropriate water level which increases the productivity of the crop. GSM (Global System for Mobile communication) technology is used to inform the user about the exact condition of the field.
