Controlling of Environmental Parameters under Polyhouse Farming using GSM
Pooja V. Raut | Aditya Thogita 
Abstract: Agricultural field is playing a vital role in Indian economy. In this, irrigation mechanism is of key concern. Irrigation is the process of artificially supplying water to land where crops are cultivated. Our paper aims to control the wastage of water in the field and to find the exact field condition for farming. Traditionally natural rainfall, canal water and hand pumps were a major source of water supply for irrigation. But this method has led to severe drawbacks like under irrigation, over irrigation which in turn causes leaching and loss of nutrient content of soil. For the monitoring and controlling of the agriculture field, different types of sensor were used. Those are temperature, humidity, soil moisture, level sensor and light sensor. GSM technology is used for communication purpose to inform the end user about the exact field condition. We are using motor for soil module and level sensing applications.
