Irrigation plays a vital role in agriculture, it’s been a central feature of agriculture for over 5,000 years and has been developed independently by several cultures across the world. This paper essentially demonstrates the effective use of irrigation in agriculture. Here we tend to build an IOT based irrigation system using ESP8266 NodeMCU Module and DHT11 sensor. It’ll not only automatically irrigate the water based on the moisture level in the soil however additionally send the information to Thingspeak server to keep track of the land condition. The System will have a water pump that will be utilized to sprinkle water on the land based on factors such as humidity, temperature, and moisture content. In this paper we tend to work on an individual crop that is cotton crop. Thus during this project we are using a cotton crop which will require a certain soil moisture level. So when the soil loses its moisture to less than the required value then motor pump will be activated automatically to sprinkle the water and it will continue to sprinkle the water until the moisture goes up to sufficient moisture level and after that the pump will be turned-off.
