The specific target of this research is to develop a system based on Web Technology(WT) and Solar Technology (ST) for monitoring and controlling a remote farm in Tanzania. A Web Based System (WBS) developed for monitoring and controlling at least one field station in a farm with infield sensor network which gather information and transmit to the browser interface. The system allow user to control and monitor tasks such as ability to set a new or delete station ,ability to control level of automation for each irrigation cycle, ability to view and set cycles for each station ,access to weather station and access to field data integrated with infield distributed sensor network . In this situation the web interface provides an excellent platform from which to develop the system which more pervasive as a means of dynamic system which contain a database records of the field information (such as coverage area, soil type ,weather information, irrigation cycles, plant type ,location and staff information), control entire systems based on infield parameters result. No special software or client are required ,just a web browser on a computer with help of webrelay . Due to the scarce of electricity in Tanzania A solar based system was also integrated to keep constant power infield so as to ensure the effectiveness in watering the plant by placing the solar water sprinkler infield .The whole system equipment’s used were planned to be powered by the solar energy. With the phenomenal growth of the Internet in the last decade, the use of a web browser interface has not only become the standard for viewing pages on the World Wide Web but has become more pervasive as a means of collecting input or providing the output status of control systems. In this situation the web interface provides an excellent platform from which to develop the system. The portability of this technology means that the system could be controlled from anywhere in the world (if required).This project will describes how Web Technology enhancement in water management and instrumentation of a wireless sensor network, and software for real-time in-field sensing and control of a site-specific precision linear-move irrigation system.
