Wireless Sensor Networks for Paddy Field Crop Monitoring Application in Kuttanad

By Santhosh Simon and K Paulose Jacob


Abstract:The evolution of wireless sensor network technology has enabled us to develop advanced systems for real time monitoring. In the present scenario wireless sensor networks are increasingly being used for precision agriculture. The advantages of using wireless sensor networks in agriculture are distributed data collection and monitoring, monitor and control of climate, irrigation and nutrient supply. Hence decreasing the cost of production and increasing the efficiency of production.This paper describes the application of wireless sensor network for crop monitoring in the paddy fields of kuttand, a region of Kerala, the southern state of India. Manimala and Achenkovil, together with the lying areas (marshes) in and around the Vembanad lake. Most of the vast expanse in this region is laying 1 – 1.5 m below mea
