This paper proposes a model of variable rate automatic microcontroller-based irrigation system. Solar power is used as only the source

of power to control the overall system. The sensor is placed on paddy field and these sensors continuously sense the water level and give the message to the farmer informing the water level without visiting the paddy fields. Thus, low-cost solar power can be the answer for all our energy needs. Solar powered smart irrigation systems are the answer to the Indian farmer. This system consists of solar powered water pump along with an automatic water flow control using a moisture sensor. It is the convenient solution for the present energy crisis for the farmers. This paper reveals a model of automatic micro controller-based irrigation system.  This paper proposes a model of automatic microcontroller-based irrigation system. Here solar energy act as the sole supplier of energy throughout. Sensors are placed on the field and these sensors continuously sense the water level and give the message to the farmer informing the water level without visiting the paddy fields. This paper proposes a model of automatic microcontroller-based irrigation system. This system reduces the cost and increases productivity. This system conserves electricity by reducing the usage of grid power and conserves water by reducing waterlosses.
