Abstract (Summary)

Agriculture is critical for economic growth and development. Maximizing productivity of agribusiness involves developing new systems to expand irrigation and enhance the utilization and fertility of available farming lands. Using modern technology to reduce costs and increase production is integral to agribusiness success. The current project presents a simple low-cost solution that was developed to improve monitoring and irrigation of farmlands. The project is implemented on an LPC2148 micro controller, using a small number of sensors and actuators: a moisture sensor, a magnetic water-level sensor, a temperature sensor, a light-dependent resistor, AC submersible pumps, and a relay driver. The micro controller is connected to the Global System for Mobile communications (GSM), and transmits the data from the field sensors to the farmer. The system operation has successfully been tested experimentally and demonstrated under laboratory conditions.
