Designing and Dismounting an Intelligent System of Irrigation Management for Greenhouse based on Delphi Software


Department of Engineering, Ahar Branch, Islamic Azad University, Ahar, Iran


The drought continuity and also restricting watery sources caused agriculture section forget
old flooding methods for optimum water exploitation and proceeding new irrigation systems.
New generation of irrigation systems called intelligent systems is a new solution leading to
exploiting water increase to higher than 80%. In order to measure sensors and to control
processors in designing and dismounting intelligent systems, Delphi programming and computer
was administered in this study.. Managing works such as irrigation time and controlling
temperature, humidity and even ventilation are managed and controlled automatically through
adjusting the style of controlling intelligent systems. Processors are responsible for providing
necessary factors about greenhouse such as heat, cold, light and humidity. Designing software in
Delphi area caused all measuring parameters’ monitoring from greenhouse area in computer
area. Central hardware system exports different orders through getting data from sensors for
controlling processors. The processors used in this way should be able to establish a faster
relationship between processors .We concluded that economizing should be done in using water
from 40 up to 50 percent with managing irrigation time and round – the – clock temperature.
Thus, the plant has enough amounts of nutritional materials.
