Sensor network applications in precision agriculture

Patil MB, Pathak SV, Shirsat NA and Chavan PP
The challenges of feeding the exponential growth of world population with limited agriculture resources require innovation in sustainable, efficient farming. The practice of precision agriculture offers many benefits towards addressing these challenges, such as improved yield and efficient use of such resources as water, fertilizer and pesticides. Sensor Network plays a very basic and essential role in any kind of automation. Internet of Things (IoT) based automation of agricultural field can change the agriculture sector from not only static to dynamic but from manual SMART. It will result in leading enhanced production with reduced human efforts. Precision Agriculture (PA) along with Sensor Network is the main driver of automation in the agriculture sector. PA uses specific sensors and software to ensure stress management in crops. It will optimize productivity and sustainability of agriculture domain. PA includes retrieving real data about the conditions of soil, crops and weather from the sensors incorporated in the fields. In this paper, a review of sensor networks for various ranges in the agriculture domain is presented along with applications and installations. This survey includes sensors and wireless communication technologies used in PA.
