Reg sftp in shell script

Hi,
I want to retrieve files from an sftp site and place it a directory in unix server.
When I try to connect, it is asking password even if i hardcode it in the script.I want to automate the script. Could anyone tell me how to avoid password prompt.

#!/bin/sh
# sample automatic ftp script to dump a file
sftp user@host << EOF
lcd /apps/MFG_BCPSITE/Temp
mget *
quit
EOF


Thanks,
Vidhya
