IoT Based Smart Irrigation System
Water scarcity nowadays is a big concern for farmers and with this growing population of our country agriculture becomes a serious and main problem that our framers are facing today. The main objective of the project is providing automatic irrigation system that switches a motor pump ON OFF by sensing moisture content of the soil through application of Internet of Things IOT . Human intervention can be reduced by proper method of irrigation. The project consists of Arduino microcontroller and sensor, where Arduino microcontroller is programmed to receive the input signal of varying moisture condition of the soil through sensor. Once the controller receives these signal, the output then relay on operating the water pump. The sensing arrangement is made up of two metallic rods inserted to the agriculture field which is required to be controlled.
