Abstract
Today water scarcity is a worldwide problem. In India, especially in Tamil Nadu Coconut farming is one of the major parts of agriculture. There were rough times for farmers when monsoon failed in the last few years. Normal type of irrigation system followed for Coconut trees was drip and basin irrigation. But farmers were forced to save the tress by irrigating them with Tractor loads of water, since there was not sufficient water in the well and borewell. This situation could have been avoided if only the required quantity of water was fed to the Coconut trees in the past and the extra water available was saved wisely. This paper proposes a novel idea to automate the irrigation method by using the LoRa and IoT technologies. This system senses the soil moisture content in various areas of the farm and automated the irrigation. The irrigation is stopped once required moisture is observed in the field. This way it can prolong the period of irrigation and hence helps the farmers during the times of monsoon failures. Also, this system eases the work of a farmer who owns a vast farmland. The farmer is able to check the flow of water to all areas of the field from his premises.
