Irrigation systems are an essential part itself since agriculture is the foremost occupation of civilized humanity. Implementation of present technology in day to day life is to reduce the human interference in agricultural sector. Currently most of the irrigation scheduling systems is fixed time base controlled system. This paper presents the special techniques in fields using PLC. Apart from fixed time base system it has features to run according to the climatic conditions. PLC [programmable logic controllers] are programmed to give response to the following input parameters time, soil humidity, temperature, etc.
