From olden days we are using non renewable sources of energy in excess amount for our needs. As minerals like coal etc are exhausting, we have to depend on the renewable sources of energy like solar, wind, etc. Agricultural sector is backbone of Indian economy as population increases demand of water and food also increases. For smaller applications it is better to use renewable energy. Hence forth solar energy is choosed in order to develop agricultural system. It has been found that PV system is the best solution for remote agricultural system and for needs such as water pumping for crops. It presents the details of a solar-powered automated irrigation system that dispenses the exact amount of water required depending on the soil moisture, hence minimizing the waste of water. A network of sensor nodes is used to collect the humidity and temperature of the soil which is transmitted to a remote station.
