The Design of Intelligent Water-Saving Irrigation System for Greenhouse
In the premise of ensuring the high yield of the crops in greenhouse, how to save water has became a research focus in precision agriculture. An intelligent water-saving irrigation system based on fuzzy control is designed in the paper. By the proposed system, the best water consumption can be calculated to meet the goal of high yield but low water-using. In the system, the soil moisture sensor TDR-3 is used to measuring the soil humidity data, whiles the radio frequency identification (RFID) modules, i.e., nRF905, is applied to transmit the data wirelessly. The control interface based on LABVIEW on PC is designed as well. Thus the goal of saving water consumption and querying historical data can be accomplished.
