Abstract

India is a land of agriculture. Three fourth of the Indian population depends on agriculture. Agriculture contributes to 16% of overall GDP and 10% of exports. In this paper, Web Based wi-fi automated soil moisture Controller is a setup based on Renesas microcontroller, GPRS module, Pulse Width Modulator (PWM), HTML page is used by the farmer to select the crop being cultivated and the system is made power independent using solar module. The most important feature of this system is continuous sensing of soil moisture content using moisture sensors. The sensed data is compared with the previously stored standard data for the particular crop in the main CPU and only the required amount of watesr is pumped using the system PWM. The pumped water is directed to the particular part of the land using electro-mechanical device, solenoid. Once the required moisture content is reached, the sensor sends the signal to turn off the motor through microcontroller. This conserves the water and supply only the required amount of water at the particular time. The aim of the project is to incorporate technology into the field of agriculture and let the farmer to irrigate large amount of land with optimum use of water.
