At present, labor-saving and water-saving technology is a key issue in irrigation. A wireless solution for intelligent field irrigation system dedicated to Jew's-ear planting in Lishui, Zhejiang, China, based on ZigBee technology was proposed in this paper. Instead of conventional wired connection, the wireless design made the system easy installation and maintenance. The hardware architecture and software algorithm of wireless sensor/actuator node and portable controller, acting as the end device and coordinator in ZigBee wireless sensor network respectively, were elaborated in detail. The performance of the whole system was evaluated in the end. The long-time smooth and proper running of the system in the field proved its high reliability and practicability. As an explorative application of wireless sensor network in irrigation management, this paper offered a methodology to establish large-scale remote intelligent irrigation system.
