Agricultural Water ManagementAgricultural Water Management
In India, water scarcity is increasing day by day and farmers getting suicide is also increasing day by day. To stop that this project will help to reduce these problems. By moisture sensor, the moisture of the land is measured and it sends a message to the farmers through twillo software. In my project how much percentage of moisture is present in the land is calculated and tells the farmer when to irrigate and when to not irrigate e the land by this a large amount of water is saved. Thus it's called Agricultural Water Management
Setting up with Soil Moisture Sensor :
Soil Moisture Sensor or Hygrometer is usually used to detect the humidity of the soil. It is also perfect to build an Automatic Watering System.
The sensor has built-in a potentiometer for sensitivity adjustment.
The voltage of the sensor output changes to the content of water in the soil.
WET: Output Voltage decreases.
DRY: Output Voltage increases.
Working of the Project :Working of the Project :
The project runs successfully and got output correctly.
These are components I used in this project. They are,
- moisture sensor
- bolt IoT module
- jumper wires
- USB cables
This was the circuit connection. The sensor is placed in sand it detects the moisture and sends to a farmer that how much percentage it has moisture in it.
This was the Output of moister sensor Since moisture is 65% it sends SMS to the farmer as below.
The farmer understands that the land is moderately moisture so he does not need to irrigate now as urgent after some times as moisture level decreased he can irrigate the land. So a large amount of water is saved.
