The greenhouse effect is responsible for Global warming which leads to changes in climate which in turn gives rise to fallouts like Chennai floods in 2015. The automation in irrigation system can be implemented in precision agriculture to repel these kind of fallouts. Here an Mobile Phone which is used as remote control for automated irrigation system consisting of low cost and easy to use Arduino UNO processor. A threshold value of moisture content is determined for specific crops and various soil. This value is then compared with the value given by a moisture sensor in soil which is in terms of voltage signals. The comparison results in process of obtaining appropriate data which is provided to Arduino UNO processor. Arduino UNO and smart phone is connected via GSM module. The Arduino UNO sends notification to smart phone via. SMS service which is displayed on screen. The irrigation drive system consists of drive motor and wired controller coupled with Arduino which can be operated by remote control i.e. Android smart phone to give commands like switching ON and OFF. The real time application of above design is viable according to studies conducted on a prototype in laboratory.
