Smart Drip Irrigation system
Raghavendra Sheddi,  Meenakumari V. Umarani
India is the agriculture based country, increasing energy costs and decreasing water supplies, point out the need for better water management. Irrigation management is a complex decision making process to determine when and how much water to apply to a growing crop to meet specific management objectives. If the farmer is far From the agricultural land he will not be noticed of current conditions. So, efficient water management plays an important role in the irrigated agricultural cropping systems. Drip irrigation allows water to drip slowly to the roots of plants, through a network of valves, pipes or emitter. It prevents soil erosion, saves water and can also supply fertilizers to crops. The most significant advantages of this technique is, it allows water conservation as water is supplied in a targeted manner near the root zone of plants in a drip by drip fashion. The Objective is to design a reliable, robust and intelligent drip irrigation controller device for regions devoid of reliable weather prediction and water supply. This system is intended to help farmers to make more efficient use of precious water while avoiding dehydration of crops.
