In this paper presents to optimize the cost of the irrigation system and water consumption for agricultural crop based on a wireless network, that are Internet of Things (IoT) radio communications. The system consists of smart mobile phone for surveillance, the motor controller unit and the field controller unit. The SIM 900 GSM module is available in motor controller unit (PIC16F877A). Information from the field controller unit such as soil moisture, land humidity, temperature is sent to the motor controller unit through Radio & Communication. From motor controller unit the information is sent to the registered mobile number through GSM module. A Command can be sent from the mobile by GSM message to control the valves and motor.
