Abstract :
The major influencing parameter of Indian economy is agricultural. Also in agricultural the most important factor is irrigation. Irrigation must be in time and proper for a better crop yield. The major irrigation is performed using electric water pumps. Irrigation by electric water pump introduced problems of frequent, intermittent, low voltage supply. This causes monitoring the supply of power and hurdles in irrigation. The unreliable power supply and frequent power cuts disturb the farmers and it leads to decrease the efficiency of farmers. This turns into the movement of farmer’s from farming to urban area. In this paper I introduced a system which shows how automation of irrigation is performed to solve the problems introduced by intermittent electrical power supply. In this paper I designed an embedded system which is controlled by sending a SMS from mobile phone. This embedded device can control maximum 8 devices.
