Irrigation Scheduler - Programmable System

To develop indigenous Irrigation Scheduler-Programmable System for the automation of both time and quantity based irrigation scheduling.

Project Number:
GAP026712, P6
Project Type:
Project Date:
20/11/2009 to 31/03/2014
Cost of the Project:
Rs. 48.07 Lakhs
Sponsoring Agency:
DST and CSIR
Deliverables:

The most widespread use of automated irrigation scheduling systems is in the intensive horticultural, and especially the protected cropping sector. In general, the automated systems in common use are based on simple automated timer operation, or in some cases the signal is provided by soil moisture sensors. For timer-based operation many systems simply aim to provide excess water to runoff at intervals, although some at least attempt to limit water application by only applying enough to replenish evaporative losses.
