Abstract

In a country like India, the agriculture plays the important role in the economy and development of the country. In the field of agriculture, use of proper method of irrigation is important and it is well known that irrigation by drip is very economical and efficient. At the present era, the farmers have been using irrigation technique in India through the manual control in which the farmers irrigate the land at the regular intervals. This process sometimes consumes more water or sometimes the water reaches late due to which the crops get dried. Over-irrigation can increase energy consumption and water cost as well as leaching of fertilizers below the root zone, erosion, and transport of soil and chemical particles to the drainage ditches. Irrigators who monitor soil moisture levels in the field greatly increase their ability to conserve water and energy, optimize crop yields, and avoid soil erosion and water pollution. The objective of this paper is to develop sensor based automated irrigation system to reduce water requirement and increase the productivity of orange orchard in Vidarbha region. This system is best suited for places where water is scarce and has to be used in limited quantity. Also, third world countries can afford this simple and low cost solution for irrigation and obtain good yield on crops.
