Current investment in crop monitoring consumes a large amount of financial cost, and how to reduce this cost has been a long-standing problem in agriculture. Traditional crop monitoring approaches are not cost-effective, because they rely on either heavy human labor or intensive computation with expensive instruments. In this paper, we explore the possibility of deploying networked sensor nodes for low-cost crop monitoring. As an example, we compute an important agricultural metric called… CONTINUE READING
