Abstract: Monitoring of environmental factors is very important over the last few decades. In particular, monitoring agricultural environments for various factors such as temperature, moisture, humidity along with other factors can be of more significance. A traditional approach to measuring these factors in an agricultural environment meant individuals manually taking measurements and checking them at various times. In this paper remote monitoring systems using wireless protocols used by different researchers for betterment of agricultural yield with best possible technologies is discussed. This is followed by proposed introductory model for agricultural monitoring with wireless protocol implemented using field programmable gate array (FPGA).
Keywords: Bluetooth, Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA), Global Positioning System (GPS), LCD display, Microcontroller, Universal Asynchronous Receiver Transmitter (UART), Wireless nodes, Wireless Sensor Network (WSN), ZigBee.

Scope of the Article: Smart Learning and Innovative Education Systems
