Abstract: There is much interest in an autonomous precision irrigation system that can reduce labor and water use and improve productivity in agriculture. This paper explains the design and implementation process of a water pump control for autonomous irrigation by custom scheduling using an open-source Internet of Things platform. Experimental results are presented for demonstrating the proper operation of the automatic irrigation system in an apple orchard.
