In agriculture, it is very important to monitor the soil moisture, so that one can know when to irrigate the field. Hence, automated irrigation based on moisture sensing can be revolutionary. In this paper the designed system not only checks the moisture content in the soil, but also pumps the water into the field automatically. Here, we are using soil moisture sensors which will let us know about the moisture level in soil. In this system, the main controlling device is microcontroller. Moisture sensor will give the status of the soil to the microcontroller. Based on that microcontroller will display the status of the soil on the LCD. If the moisture content is lower than threshold level, the microcontroller will switch (ON/OFF) pumping motor using relay. The pumping motor will pump the water into the field by using drip water system until the field is wet which, in turn, is continuously monitored by the microcontroller. This saves the water and at the same time the crops will get optimum level of water, so increasing productivity of crop.
