Abstract: Abstract - Irrigation is the most important cultural exercise and most labor exhaustive job in daily greenhouse procedure. Irrigation systems ease the load of getting water to plants when they need it. Knowing when and how much to water is two significant features of watering procedure. To make the planter works effortlessly, the automatic plant watering system is generated. In our home also, we have potted plants on the rooftop gardens. During summers, most people are too lazy to water these plants every day. Or sometimes it may happen that, whenever we go out of town for few days, we used to worry about our plants as they need water on regular basis. So here we are making Automatic Plant Irrigation System using Arduino, which automatically provides water to our plants and keep us updated by sending message to our cell phone. In This Plant Irrigation System, Soil Moisture Sensor checks the moisture level in the soil and if moisture level is low then Arduino switches on a water pump to provide water to the plant. Water pump gets automatically off when system finds enough moisture in the soil. Whenever system switches on or off the pump, a message is sent to the user via GSM module, updating the status of water pump and soil moisture. This system is very useful in farms, gardens, home etc. This system is completely automated and there is no need for any human involvement.
