Abstract: In the agriculture field, the method of irrigation and its proper usage is more important and it is well known that a very economical and efficient method is drip irrigation. The continuous monitoring of the soil and weather condition has to be done by the farmer in favour of growth of crops in conventional drip irrigation system. In this proposed system, the soil and weather condition of the field are monitored by the moisture as well as temperature sensor. The values from the temperature and moisture sensors are sensed and the signal is sent to the Arduino IDE controller which is powered by solar energy and thus the present values are compared with predefined values. According to value of the temperature and moisture, the crops can be supplied with the required amount of water. In the liquid crystal display, the sensed values of the temperature and moisture will be displayed and the user can receive the data through the GSM module.
