Agriculture sensor array. Case study: How to avoid crop damage. Monitoring insects populations.

According to Food and Agricultural Organization of US, insects are caused to destroy 20% of the world’s total crop production annually, generating a loss of hundred billion dollars to the economy.

In addition to the economic losses from crop damage, there are indirect losses related to an implication of pesticides.

Agriculture requires a targeted approach to pest management –  easy, safe and low-cost control methods. In order to make well-informed decisions about when to spray the crops, to target insecticides more accurately to reduce costs, optimise resources and improve yield, it should be able to:

  • Detect species that are present
  • Determine their population density
  • Determine how they are distributed in the field

We developed a  LoraWAN sensor array based on STM32F4xx, MCU and RFM95W 868/915Mhz RF Transceiver Module and applied onboard decision making.
