Abstract: Efficient water management and security is an important task in any cropping systems. In the present work an attempt has been made to design and develop a system that automatically monitors the moisture content in the irrigation field and protects the crops by usage of GSM and Microcontroller technology. The system makes use of sensors like humidity, IR and PIR to get the feedback from the irrigation field and initiating the necessary action with the help of Microcontroller. After implementation of this system it is observed that the system was able to detect the insecure condition in the field and give alert message to farmer and also maintain required moisture content was maintained automatically. This system provides an ideal solution to the problems faced by farmer in daily life in their field. The system is adaptable and cost-effective. The system uses embedded technology so all advantages of embedded system present here.
