Abstract: This project on "Automatic Irrigation System on Sensing Soil Moisture Content" is intended to create an automated irrigation mechanism which turns the pumping motor ON and OFF on detecting the dampness content of the earth. In the domain of farming, utilization of appropriate means of irrigation is significant. The benefit of employing these techniques is to decrease human interference and still make certain appropriate irrigation. This automated irrigation project brings into play an Arduino board ATmega328 micro-controller ,is programmed to collect the input signal of changeable dampness circumstances of the earth via dampness detecting system.
