Wireless Sensor Network in Agriculture: A Review

Neha Singh, Gaurav Singh


The communication and remote sensor systems have advanced a lot, paving their way in the agriculture sectors also. Precision agriculture is one such example of this advancement. This paper gives a brief blueprint of energy efficient ways for precision agriculture utilizing wireless sensor networks (WSN). A topology under control wireless sensor network with stationary sensor hubs and portable base station, a topology is decided keeping in mind the end goal to have productive outcomes in precision agriculture
