Smart Irrigation System using Arduino Uno and Control of Paddy Plant Diseases

2020 International Journal of Engineering and Advanced Technology  
These days, the increase in population has led to water scarcity in India. A large amount of water is wasted in Horticulture. Horticulture is the backbone of India. Most of the population in India depends on agriculture mainly in villages. This paper proposes an automatic irrigation system and control of paddy plant diseases by using pesticides. It monitors environmental parameters such as temperature, soil moisture, and humidity and also monitors paddy plant diseases. The functioning of motors

Crop production can be increased by detecting the disease as early as possible and providing proper pesticides. It also detects the intruder in the field by using the ultrasonic sensor. By using the GSM module the message will send to the farmer.
