In the present work, attempt has been made to automate the irrigation system without the human interface by using the programmable logic controller. The purpose of this paper is to utilize the available water and electricity in an effective way with increase in the productivity. This paper is to develop a self-governing irrigation system with the use of soil moisture sensor to schedule the irrigation.
