Water recourses are essential for satisfying the human needs, protection and ensuring food production, energy and the restoration of ecosystems, as well as for social and economic development and for sustainable development. In the field of agriculture, use of proper method of irrigation is important because the main reason is the lack of rains and scarcity of land reservoir water. The continuous extraction of water from earth is reducing the water level due to which lot of land is coming slowly in the zones of un-irrigated land. Another very important reason of this is due to unplanned use of water due to which a significant amount of water goes waste Our proposed work is used to solar energy operate the irrigation pump. The circuit comprises of moisture sensor and water level sensor. The stiff copper wires are inserted in the soil to sense whether the soil is wet or dry. This project also used a water level sensor where a Light Emitting Diode (LED) will give a warning when the water supply is running low.
