Wireless Sensor Network technology has been used for continuous monitoring of farm lands to increase the agriculture yield. This research work proposes the design of a wireless sensor network system for continuous monitoring of sesame cultivation. It proposes a design of an integrated wireless sensor network
that senses various agriculture parameters such as soil moisture, soil pH and soil temperature. The research has developed several decision algorithms to alert the
farmers, the field conditions and the remedial measures to attain higher yield. The prototype system has been tested and the results are given along with this paper.
This work presents a cost effective technology to increase production and improve agriculture yield for sesame farming in India.
