Abstract: Agriculture plays a vital role in the economy of any country. Therefore it needs more enhancements by improving its manual methods with the help of technology. In irrigation system, water plays a vital role in crop production. This study proposes smart water distribution system for irrigation system. Microcontroller is used to control the water distribution according to the requirements of crops. Real time watering requirements are measured through embedded sensors placed in each field. A user-friendly GUI based application is developed that enables the user to monitor and control the water distribution. By using this application, user can schedule the water distribution plan for automatic distribution in advance. User can also easily analyze the history of water distribution in the form of graphs and also estimate the consumption of power with respect to crops.
