Water Conservation and labor-saving is the key issue of irrigation in India. This Shot paper proposes an automatic irrigation control based on microcontroller and GSM technology. This wireless design provides high reliability. We have used SparkFunsoil moisture sensor SEN 13322 which is interfaced with RobokartAruduino Mega 2560 microcontroller. The soil information such as dry and wetness of the irrigation field is given to Elementz SIM 800 GSM module to an authorized wireless telephone from the remote area to the monitoring system based on smart sensor network. With the help of soil wet and dry information we are controlling the invento DC motor automatically with the help of sending message in smart phone.
