ABSTRACT

 

This paper proposes a tea plantation monitoring system for monitoring information concerning tea production environment utilizing Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) technology. The proposed system collects environmental and soil information of the field through WSN-based environmental soil sensors and collects leaf image information through IR camera. This collected information is converted into a database and provided to planters. It could be expected that the use of such a system could contribute to increasing crop yields and improving quality in the agricultural field by supporting the decision making of planters through analysis of the collected information.
