Abstract

In India agriculture is the main
occupation of the people. Our people completely
depended on the agricultural harvesting. In dry
areas or in case of inadequate rainfall, irrigation
becomes difficult. so, todays our farmers are
using drip irrigation to save water. In drip
irrigation the farmers must switch on the drip
based on timings manually on his assumption of
plants moisture level. In this paper we are
proposing a smart drip irrigation which is based
on Controller. We are using moisture sensor to
sense the moisture level of the plants. We will
collect the moisture reading from sensor to
“ThingSpeak” cloud, where we are calculate the
average value of sensors and we will compare to
the threshold value of moisture. If the value is
greater than threshold value the notification will
be sent to the mobile app denoting farmer to
switch on the pump of that line. If farmers
switch on the pump the pump will be opened in
the farm by which water will flow to plants. The
moisture level reduces.
