Abstract

The project titled "Design and development of automated solar pesticide sprayer for agricultural farm purpose" is an attempt for finding ample solutions to the problems faced by farmers. The goal is to reduce fatigue on farmers while spraying pesticides using the renewable source of energy to power the sprayer. In Agricultural field pesticide spraying is one of the essential tasks to upkeep the health of crop and avoiding or controlling the pests, as it affects the growth of the crops. There are various non-conventional energy sources through which the power can be generated, such as solar energy, Wind energy, Tidal energy, Biogas energy, these are the various non-conventional energy sources. In most parts of India, Solar energy is widely available in nature throughout the year, henceforth energy from sun rays can be utilized in miscellaneous application like spraying, drying and cooking etc. In agricultural areas spraying is one of the essential tasks. This project aims in designing and constructing low cost solar powered pesticide sprayer. Automated Solar pesticide sprayer would consist - solar panel, chargeable battery and motor with other necessary accessories. The equipment will have potential advantages over conventional sprayers, and would be user friendly hoping that it would be readily accepted by the farmers.
