Abstract: In the agriculture segment, splashing pesticides is a significant undertaking to shield the harvests from creepy crawlies for getting a high return. However, farmers have been mainly using traditional conventional techniques like hand operated and fuel operated sprayer system for spraying pesticides. Fuel is expensive and in some places fuel may not be available. If hand operated spraying systems are used, the labour productivity decreases and the efficiency will be low. The use of a solar energy system is an alternate solution for these limitations. A sun powered worked pesticide sprayer is a siphon running on power created by the photovoltaic boards or the warm vitality accessible from gathered daylight. The task of sun powered controlled siphons are progressively affordable for the most part because of the lower activity and support costs and has the less ecological effect than siphons fueled by an internal combustion engine. In this, charged battery can in like manner be used for home machines like sparkling CFL bulbs, compact charging, etc. In this paper, a detailed design calculation of an agro sprayer is presented by using reliably available solar energy which makes our device eco-friendly
