Irrigation is a major problem faced by farmers today. So automated irrigation system must be employed to overcome this. In India, agriculture plays an important role in development of food production. In our country, agriculture depends on the monsoons which are not sufficient source of water. Although there is much automated irrigation system, it cannot be implemented for fields having different crops. This proposed system implements the farmers need by incorporating soil moisture sensor and an embedded controller. This system can be implemented for fields having different crops that can be cultivated in a region. Farmers can monitor and control the field from remote locations using GSM technology.
