The objectives of this research is to design and test a suitable set of drip irrigation powered by solar cell. Solar panel is used to charge the battery which helps to run the motor in irrigation field. Soil moisture sensor measure the moisture level in the soil. If the moisture level drops below 40%, then motor is switched ON automatically to pump the water to irrigation field, until the moisture level reaches to 40%. Then the motor is switched OFF.
In this project as designed for drip irrigation powered by solar cell for dry rain fed and no electricity area. In the solar power panel get energy from renewable source of sun. This energy can be stored and utilized to the drip irrigation process. Sequence can be made for irrigation under the soil moisture level. If soil moisture level is lesser than 40% motor become start and the irrigation as done smoothly.
This project can be done dynamically with water flow measure in the real time application with help of mobile communication, internet and websites.
