Abstract: Paddy cultivation is one of the major crops cultivated in India. Normally paddy cultivation is grown twice in a year, where the consumption of water is high during the cultivation. The monitoring of the water level continuously is a little bit tedious to the farmer. However, with the assistance of advanced technology, the burden on the farmer can be reduced. So, in this study, we are proposing the Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) architecture based water level regulating system. WSN architecture consists of three nodes like sensor node, cluster head node, and sink node. With the assistance of the float sensor and ZigBee wireless communication module, the sensor node which is deployed in the paddy field senses the water level data and communicates to the sink node. The cluster head node monitors the sensor nodes of the cluster of paddy fields and controls the actuator concerning the water level. Sink node is generally located nearby farmer location, with the assistance of sink node the farmer observer the status of water level in their paddy fields in the LCD display. This system enhances in maintaining the optimal level of water and also reduces the burden on the farmer for continuous monitoring. Especially the sensor node follows the power management system, where the power interruption is avoided.
