Abstract: Internet of Things (IoT) is a boon to the technological developments during the past decade. Though the adoption of this technology in agriculture has gone up immensely in recent years, the implementation of the smart irrigation system remains its initial stage in this agricultural setup. The sprinkler or dripper irrigation methods are widely used in the smart irrigation environment. In this paper a hybrid method is proposed to select the irrigation method automatically based on the climate changes and soil moisture level. By enhancing this method using the rapid growing technologies and IoT enabled smart irrigation controllers, the agriculture sector will be improved over the foreseeable future.
