The proposed system focus on a smart irrigation system which is cost effective and farmers can use it in their farm field. Automation not only allows us to control appliances automatic control but also provide comfort and reduces energy, efficiency and time saving. In last few years, the remotely monitored embedded system which is used for irrigation purposes have become a new necessity for farmer to save his energy, time and money. So here we design a protocol for smart irrigation technology in low cost which is usable by farmers and implementable in farm. This system controls the water motor remotely and checks the status of the farm through various sensors like soil moisture, water level indicator. The main objective is to apply the system for maintaining the quality of the soil and hence the health of the plant through multiple sensors and save electricity. Finally the sensed information of the farm field is displayed on the android app of the user. This approach provides real-time information about the lands and crops which is useful for farmers to make right decisions. By using the basic principles of WSN and the internet of things (IOT) technology is explained in detail especially on the hardware architecture, network architecture and the software process control of the precision irrigation system. The microcontroller monitors data from the sensors and activates the control devices based on threshold value. This project is proposing a complete agricultural solution for the farmer based on Wireless network.
