Indian agriculture is dependent on the monsoons which is not a reliable source of water, so there is a need for an automatic irrigation system in the country which can provide water to the farms according to their moisture and soil types. Modern drip Irrigation is today°«s need because water resources are very limited, diminishing day by day and most of them depend upon monsoons. The one and only one solution to this problem is automated Drip Irrigation system. 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. In the conventional drip irrigation system, the farmer has to follow a schedule for watering, which is different for different crops. In the automatic microcontroller based drip irrigation system, irrigation will take place only when there will be intense requirement of water. A variety of drip irrigation methods have been proposed, but most of them have been found to be very expensive and complicated to use. In future each and every farmer, whether poor or uneducated might wake up in need of such a system, therefore the proposed applications targeting an automatic irrigation system with minimal cost, time and human-computer interaction.
