Automation of Agricultural Product Watering at Futuka Farm in Lubumbashi: A Comprehensive Study

Kaumba Emmanuel [8] | Sangwa Muyumba Fidele [2]

Abstract: This study focuses on automating the watering system for agricultural products at Futuka Farm in Lubumbashi. The aim is to improve productivity and reduce manual labor by replacing the current manual watering method. The study considers theoretical aspects of automated production systems, utilizing a sprinkler system for uniform irrigation. Data collection involves documentary research and interviews with farm agents. The proposed automated system will feature a sprinkler trolley controlled by a motor, speed variator, and an S7 - 300 PLC for control, along with sensors to collect process information. The study seeks to enhance productivity and competitiveness by optimizing water usage and minimizing labor efforts.
