Nowadays, population growth has led to water scarcity in most parts of the world. A large amount of water is wasted in agriculture. This article proposes an automatic plant watering system that uses an Arduino UNO and Soil moisture sensor. It automatically detects soil moisture and decides if watering is needed. The automatic watering system, a soil moisture sensor, checks the moisture level in the soil, and if the moisture level is low, the Arduino turns on a water pump to provide the water. The water pump automatically shuts off when the system detects sufficient moisture in the soil. Whenever the system turns the pump on or off, the status of the water pump and soil moisture is updated. This system is fully automated and does not require human intervention. This system is useful for gardens, Farming, etc.
