Water management is a big issue of Indian agriculture sector, which affects the productivity. Indian irrigation system is mainly dependent on rain. Due to lower than expected rain and lack of water management, agriculture sector in India get highly affected every year. Therefore, irrigation system cannot be depended on rain. We have to take help of technology, if we want to increase productivity and profit in this sector. Wireless sensor networks may help to manage the use of water, increase crop productivity and provide the real time data instead of depending on prediction. Keywords:- Wireless sensor network, Irrigation system, Soil moisture sensor, Agriculture, Communication.
