Agricultural Parameters Monitoring with Sensors, GPRS and Automatic Water Irrigation System
This paper presents monitoring of the soil parameters with sensor technology. Multiple sensors such as pH sensor, moisture sensor, humidity sensor, temperature sensor and LDR are used to sense the different soil parameters such as soil pH, soil moisture, humidity, temperature and light intensity respectively. GPRS module is used so one can able to monitor this parametrical information from anywhere. Web interface gives global approach to the system. ARM 7 collects the sensor information from sensors continuously and stores it in MySQL database. Due to the provision of web interface user can monitor and control the parameters remotely. Information received from the moisture sensor useful to develop automatic water irrigation system, so water supplying is done according to need of the soil by sensing moisture level in the soil.
