In India, agriculture plays an important role for development in food production. In our country, agriculture are depends on the monsoons which is not sufficient source of water. So the irrigation is used in agriculture field. The greenhouse based modern agriculture industries are the recent requirement in every part of agriculture in India. In this technology, The overhead structure is created for the movement of water spraying machine. This machine unit which is programmed by the microcontroller will spray the water from start to end plant in the rows. This system provides the equal amount of water to every plant in the greenhouse unit. One of the objectives of this work is to see how human control could be removed from irrigation and also to optimize the use of water in the process. In greenhouse effect it is very difficult to provide adequate amount of water by manual watering process Hence, Automated irrigation system plays an important role. It also helps in time saving, removal of human agriculture and the climatic conditions. The most important factor of this system is microcontroller is used to control the movement of water spraying machine.
