Soil and Moisture Sensor

  • Agricultural practices need to be transformed in order to overcome future food scarcity due to overpopulation across the globe.
  • Using LoRa, it is possible to monitor farm fields using low-cost and low-power consuming devices.
  • To automate irrigation systems for efficient usage of water resources.
  • Weather forecast using IoT can help to plan farm filed activities like sowing, harrowing, harvesting, etc.
  • This reduces negative impacts like yield losses due to uncertain weather changes.
  • LoRa communication mechanism sends sensor data like temperature (°C), humidity (%) and soil moisture (%) from the transmitter node to receiver node.
  • The receiving node which is Wi-Fi enabled uses MQTT services to monitor the data.
