Introduction: Automatic/manual Drip Irrigation
Drip irrigation, also known as trickle irrigation or micro irrigation or localized irrigation, is an irrigation method that saves water and fertilizer by allowing water to drip slowly to the roots of plants, either onto the soil surface or directly onto the root zone, through a network of valves,pipes, tubing, and emitters. It is done through narrow tubes that deliver water directly to the base of the plant.
got ideas from
Step 1: Materials Required
1. pipes //choose two different sizes of pipe as u require.
3. power supply ,( can be battery,adapter...)
4. switch for on and off
making it automatic just require a microcontroller
• i have used arduino mega 2560
Step 2: Making Stand
cutting the long pipe in small one as shown in the pic above
Step 3: Making Hole in the Stand for Small Pipe
making a hole in the pipe so that small pipe can be inserted and fixed into the ground.
Step 4: Connection
make the hole in the long pipe and connect it to small pipe..
Step 5: Pump
close the other end of the pipe..
you just need to connect a pump to the end of the pipe and connect it to a power source................
this is only for manual process
Step 6: Making It Automatic
for this you require a micro controller
and an 5v pump or u can purchase 12v and add a relay..
upload the code to arduino and see the comments of the code for connections
click the link which is above

details of making it automatic is written in the code itself.......
