The results of studying the telemetry and control system requirements and fabrication and test of certain portions of an automated irrigation system are described. The primary areas of work involve the gathering of field data, such as soil moisture, from numerous points in the field by the use of telemetry and then using the data to control automated valves which in turn control flow rate to the various field locations. Two telemetry systems are studied. (Author Modified Abstract)
