Abstract
The advanced development in wireless sensor networks can be used in monitoring various parameters in agriculture. Due to uneven natural distribution of rain water it is very difficult for farmers to monitor and control the distribution of water to agriculture field in the whole farm or as per the requirement of the crop. There is no ideal irrigation method for all weather conditions, soil structure and variety of crops cultures. Farmers suffer large financial losses because of wrong prediciton of weather and incorrect irrigation methods. In this context, with the evolution of miniaturized sensor devices coupled with wireless technologies, it is possible remotely monitor parameters such as moisure, temperature and humidity. In this paper it is proposed to design, develop and implement a wireless sensor network connected to a central node using ZigBee, which in turn is connected to a Central Monitoring Station (CMS) through General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) or Global System for Mobile (GSM) technologies. The system also obtains Global Positionting System (GPS) parameters related to the field and sends them to a central monitoring station. This system is expected to help farmers in evaluating soil conditions and act accordingly.
