Abstract: The fast growing information technologies simplifies the daily life of users everywhere, thus applying these technologies in the field of irrigation is a must in the present times. The GSM based automated spray irrigation system provide a simple approach to automated irrigation. This project makes use of the GSM (Global System for Mobile Communication) to provide the wireless control and to inform the user about extreme field condition. The objective of this study is to design and develop a GSM based automated instrumentation system utilizing microcontroller, flow meter and moisture sensor via wireless system in addition to design and develop spray irrigation system to be integrated to the proposed instrumentation system. The proposed GSM based automated spray irrigation system prototype consists of two main components hardware and software. The hardware consists of two components instrumentation system and spray irrigation system. Instrumentation system based on microcontroller, flow meter, moisture sensor, LCD and GSM. Spray irrigation system that consists of spray nozzles system, irrigation piping, solenoid valve and a wooden box to plant inside it. The software consists of a C++ code to link the various components together. The main component is the microcontroller which links the various materials used conducting the signals which operates the spray irrigation system and the GSM based wireless control. A GSM based automated instrumentation system was successfully designed and developed to be utilized in the spray irrigation system. With the existing system remote agricultural fields could be easily operated, monitored and controlled with a relatively low cost.
