Paper Title
Solar-Powered Smart Irrigation System for Vegetable Garden Using Adaptive Process for IoT Applications

Research and development with descriptive survey method was employed where a Solar-Powered Smart irrigation System for Vegetable Garden was designed, developed, implemented and evaluated. In the process of development, an adaptive process for IoT applications was utilized using Agile methodology. The technology employed was evaluated based from the compliance criteria for evaluating IoT applications adopted from Kim (2016). Participants of the study were the Municipal Agriculturists and agricultural engineers, as well as vegetable farmers of the province of Isabela, Philippines who were tasked to identify the problems encountered in vegetable farming with regards to irrigation.IT Experts from the city government of Cauayan, Isabela as well as IT professionals from Isabela State UniversityCauayan campuswere tasked to evaluate the technology developed using the compliance criteriafor evaluating IoT applications. It was revealed that most of the farmers doesn’t have adequate water supply, especially during the dry season to sustain vegetable farming. Due to problems on the irrigation system, farmers cannot sufficiently produce vegetables to supply and sustain community needs. On the side of technology, IT experts are very much amenable on the functions of the technology developed in the smart irrigation system for vegetable farmers. Municipal Agriculturist and farmers appreciated the use of wireless technology presented. For best results, the Philippine government must give the farmers and agriculturists the best supports, initiatives, and awareness regarding the potentials, risks, and options on the utilization of a solar-powered smart irrigation system.
