Solar Powered Automated Fertigation Control System For Terrace Farming Using ZigBee

Project Abstract / Summary : Production of vegetables in terrace of the house has been experiencing accelerated growth, but watering and nutritioning plants is a serious task, scheduling the water requirement along the plant’s life cycle is a challenging issue faced by us in this busy environment as the requirement varies with growth. So this system is developed to overcome the above difficulties. Automation in fertigation is done. Fertigation allows people to automatically deliver adequate nutrient quantity and concentration through drip irrigation to plant’s active root area throughout the growing season. This system is developed using embedded system, which is powered using renewable solar power. This system has the advantage that it can be adapted to any climate and its low cost design with reduced manual operation.

Why did you choose to work on this project topic : we thought this project is the future way to overcome food demand and fresh vegetables can be grown by us without any manual operations.this project is fully automated using micro controller so there is no need for manual watering and fertilizing the plants,this project can be adapted to any places like green house,nurseries,and even for field crops cultivation for any climatic conditions,we decided to produce our own vegetables,at the same time available of fresh water is cities is a huge problem so we use drip irrigation system to conserve water.we chose this project to conserve water and to apply water to the root of the plant to increase its growth.conservation of energy is also achieved by using solar renewable energy.the overall aim is to conserve energy,water and at the same time to improve plants growth,so this automation project is done

Project Highlights : we are willing to win this contest so that we get a platform to present this world about producing our own food at our own home.and we made it simple by automating this project,this project can totally change the food demand.we have an idea of developing a commercial product of this project at low cost,so this contest could be the way to achieve that.
