Abstract

This paper presents a feasible and a low-cost IoT based monitoring system for precision agriculture, with emphasis to viticulture. A field/crop data are acquired by self-powered measuring station and sent to remote collector, located in the home or office. The collector accepts the data and forward them via home/office WiFi to commercial or open IoT servers (as ThingSpeak) for further visualization, analyze and react back. Using available APIs, any web application on any server can communicate with IoT server, and thus with field station. Every authorized person or farmer, who has computer or gadget with Internet access can monitor parameters of interest and control back associated processes as irrigation or ventilation. Principle of operation, hardware and software architecture as well as preliminary results are shortly elaborated.

VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0SU_tEkb3yo&t=4s . Smart Farming is the process of plant monitoring, detection of disease, supply of water and fertilizers by means of Artificial Intelligence and Internet of Things. Meeting the extended expansion in worldwide interest for medicine in this century will require interdisciplinary and concurrent methodologies from plant sciences and designing to support economical rural creation. The system that we propose measure and monitor, temperature and air humidity by DHT11 sensor and soil moisture by Watermark 200ss sensor. Reading speed of the all sensor values is adjusted. Because of its huge complexity and its software structure this project has big importance. The whole project is based on Arduino UNO platform, while the user has a possibility of adjusting the reading speed of all sensors using potentiometer.

Cloud Computing is a well-established paradigm for building service-centric systems. However, ultra-low latency, high bandwidth, security, and real-time analytics are limitations in Cloud Computing when analysing and providing results for a large amount of data. Fog and Edge Computing offer solutions to the limitations of Cloud Computing. The number of agricultural domain applications that use the combination of Cloud, Fog, and Edge is increasing in the last few decades. This article aims to provide a systematic literature review of current works that have been done in Cloud, Fog, and Edge Computing applications in the smart agriculture domain between 2015 and up-to-date. The key objective of this review is to identify all relevant research on new computing paradigms with smart agriculture and propose a new architecture model with the combinations of Cloud–Fog–Edge. Furthermore, it also analyses and examines the agricultural application domains, research approaches, and the application of used combinations. Moreover, this survey discusses the components used in the architecture models and briefly explores the communication protocols used to interact from one layer to another. Finally, the challenges of smart agriculture and future research directions are briefly pointed out in this article.

Vineyard Irrigation consumes large amount of water for sustainability and quality production of grapes. In order to meet the demand of grapes on the growing population across the world, vineyard irrigation has to be improved. Improper tracking of the growth of grapes in vineyard has led to serious problem in quality production of grapes. To address these problems on vineyard irrigation, this paper proposes an automatic wireless water management system (AWWMS) using Internet of Things for vineyard growth. The proposed system primarily focuses on optimal water usage and reduced manual labor on vineyard field so that wastage of time, cost and power on grape production can be saved. The system involves the coordination of wireless sensors deployed in the soil in gathering required real-time information such as soil moisture, air humidity and environmental temperature which is then passed to the cloud server through IoT gateway for making decisions on whether to water the soil or not. The proposed AWWMS system was developed and tested on a small scale environment. We developed test cases based on air humidity, soil moisture, environmental temperature and water pump status. We clearly state that deployment of this AWWMS system in large scale environment can yield better results.

The surge in global population is compelling a shift towards smart agriculture practices. This coupled with the diminishing natural resources, limited availability of arable land, increase in unpredictable weather conditions makes food security a major concern for most countries. As a result, the use of internet of things (IoT) and data analytics (DA) are employed to enhance the operational efficiency and productivity in the agriculture sector. There is a paradigm shift from use of wireless sensors network (WSN) as a major driver of smart agriculture to the use of IoT and DA. The IoT integrates several existing technologies such as WSN, radio frequency identification, cloud computing, middleware systems and end-user applications. In this paper, several benefits and challenges of IoT have been identified. We present the IoT ecosystem and how the combination of IoT and DA is enabling smart agriculture. Furthermore, we provide future trends and opportunities which are categorized into technological innovations, application scenarios, business and marketability.

This Viticulture has always, by definition, been a "precision" production: detailed knowledge of not only individual vineyards, but also each grapevine individually, provided detailed programming of work operations and production factors adapted for each parcel individually or, better said, for each part of a single parcel. The spatial variability of a particular vineyard can be due to any difference in any element or property for each of the natural, biological, agronomic factors which influence vine performance and the expression of grape and wine characters. This research is aimed at developing methods to quantify temporal variability observed within vineyards and to use data processing tools to assist wine producers and viticulturists to control, analyse and make decisions from so-provided information. Combining the technologies and methodologies will allow wine growers to improve and optimize production systems by taking into account technical and economic aspects of management as well as environmental issues at an intra-parcel (sub-block) level.

The precision viticulture is unique in its emphasis on vineyard management according to local variation of agro biological conditions, and in its use of science and technology to accomplish this aim. To achieve a particular goal of improved yield and quality in vineyard management, it is essential to understand the impact of plant–soil–water dynamics at different phenological growth stages of the plant physiology. Irrigation system is one of the most important factors for successful agricultural production. Contemporary plant production is based on the better utilization of water per unit area, i.e. to achieve as much yield as possible, while reducing the amount of invested resources (water, fertilizers). The paper presents the results of research carried out within the company 13. Jul Plantaže and the use of irrigNET system in order to optimize irrigation of vines. At several micro localities with different vine varieties, 28 sensor devices have been installed on the Ćemovsko field to monitor moisture dew in the soil at different depths. Finally, for each micro locality, the values of the field moisture capacity were determined, all for the purpose of more precise scheduling of the irrigation and irrigation norm.

The role of wireless sensor networks (WSNs) in agriculture has become prominent as part of the precision farming initiative. In the future, multiple WSN systems will be deployed on every farm. Accurate and timely analyses of the data collected by these systems will become paramount for increasing efficiency and sustainability of farming. Conventionally, analyzing monitoring data is considered to be beyond WSN capabilities, and, therefore, carried out remotely. Meanwhile, in recent years, complexity of the tasks performed by WSNs has been constantly increasing. Modern wireless sensors possess computational capacity sufficient for certain data-analytics functionality. This article overviews modern WSN functionality that incorporates a certain level of intelligence, while the authors explore challenges and potential benefits of WSN-based analytics in the scope of precision farming.
