Objectives: This document describes an automatic irrigation system design, using SCADA software and wireless sensor network. Methods/Analysis: The system was made using the drip irrigation system method, and the communication the field and the supervisor system was established using ZigBee devices connected in mesh topology. The SCADA system monitors four variables of the field: temperature, soil moisture content, water and nutrient level and status of the ZigBee device. Findings: The purpose of this paper is not only to contribute knowledge to the development of the Colombian field, through the application of new technologies of irrigation automation of crops, but to motivate research, development and innovation around this topic. Improvements: It is contemplated the use of a web portal where you can monitor the system, thus adding a notification mode. In addition, the use of redundancy to avoid loss of data in the crop, both on the side of data acquisition, and on the side of storage.
Keywords: Data Logging, Drip Irrigation, Precision Agriculture, Supervision-Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA), ZigBee
