Abstract: This paper presents an overview and an approach of automatic irrigation system using android mobile. In this paper. After a brief introduction, the focus is on literature review wherein we have studied 15 papers related to the topic and have successfully analysed and them. On the basis of the literature review, we have proposed a GSM based automatic irrigation system having promising scope. Proposed work attempts to save the natural resources available for human kind by continuously monitoring the status of the soil, the flow of water can be controlled and thereby reduce the wastage. Also, by knowing the moisture and temperature content through GSM, water flow can be controlled thereby conserving both water and labour.

Keywords: Automatic irrigation control system, android based irrigation, moisture and temperature sensors
