Abstract

Agricultural areas are getting reduced due to human negligence in providing modern irrigation methods. As a result, reflections aiming to save water use in the water network management context have been developed over the years. In this chapter, the authors propose a platform for precision agriculture which allows collecting fundamental physical phenomena (soil moisture, air temperature, humidity, water level, water flow, luminous intensity) required for the precision agriculture, which will be carried out to calculate the water quantity needed for optimal irrigation. The platform consists of a sensor/actuator node, a desktop application, and a gateway switches relay that controls the water pump according to the requirement. It uses an algorithm developed with threshold values of temperature and soil moisture (Rawls and Turq formulas) to control water quantity. The proposal is a good starting point for a smart, sustainable, and low-cost irrigation solution.
