Water which forms the most important ingredient in the process of photosynthesis is desired for its unobstructed growth. It should be supplied to the soil just to satisfy its field capacity above which the water being supplied is a waste. To save water during the growing rainy season and to make use of this saved water during the other seasons at farm level gives scope to development of various water saving technologies. One such further development is the use of automation in drip irrigation system which overcomes the problem of water wastage especially in areas where there is water scarcity. The equipment employed makes use of sensors to sense the moisture and supply water only when the moisture is deficient in soil.
