In agriculture the major problem which farmers face is the water scarcity, so to improve the usage of water one of the irrigation system using drip irrigation which is implemented is "Automated irrigation system with partition facility for effective irrigation of small scale farms" (AISPF). But this method has some drawbacks which can be improved and here we are with a method called "Automated irrigation system using weather prediction for efficient usage of water resources' (AISWP), it solves the shortcomings of AISPF process. AISWP method helps us to use the available water resources more efficiently by sensing the moisture present in the soil and apart from that it is actually predicting the weather by sensing two parameters temperature and humidity thereby processing the measured values through an algorithm and releasing the water accordingly which is an added feature of AISWP so that water can be efficiently used.
