Abstract : In view of the diseases caused by the insects to plants in greenhouse farming, this paper designs an automatic insecticide sprayer, which can sense the motion of insects which entered the greenhouse farming field and communicate to turn on the respective mist sprayer to insecticide. Today, the Greenhouse farming rate is increasing due to the protection of crops from diseases, increasing production, minimizing production, stability and security, etc. But there are many possible ways that insects can enter greenhouse farms. So protecting the crops in a greenhouse farm will be so difficult for a farmer to spray insecticide, and the growth rate of crops will also be decreased. To decrease the burden, this automatic insecticide sprayer will be helpful to do insecticides. In this device, we use a motion sensor to detect the motion of harmful flies which entered the greenhouse farm. Since the device was automatic, there will be no need for farmers to take care of plants to protect them from insects. In this device, we used solenoid valves. It helps us to spray insecticides only in the detected region and in the other regions spraying will not be done, and we can save the wastage of insecticide.
