An Automated Irrigation System to Improve Water Usage Efficiency in Irrigation Sector
Keywords:Arduino, DHT11 sensor, Soil moisture sensor, LCD, GSM, DC motor, WIFI module
The aim of the project is to amount of irrigation to agricultural fields by observing the moisture content of soil. This is used to address water scarcity at the regional national level. The project automates the process of manually irrigating the fields by switching the pump ON/OFF. It is implemented by using ARDUINO series microcontroller, programmed such as to collect input signals that measure moisture content of soil through sensing arrangement. On receiving the signal, the microcontroller produces an output that drives a relay and operates the water pump. Also, LCD is used which interacts with microcontroller for displaying the moisture content of soil and water pump status. Hence the system reduces human intervention and provides required irrigation to field. This is essential because water must be provided to the plant at a particular time for a good yield. Thus, it is useful in real time scenario and end users are interested in using this system.
