Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are an invaluable tool in agriculture. Currently these systems are good at reporting and logging data. Some recent work has focused on making the data useful and actionable. The next step in WSNs is the ability to automatically use that data for irrigation control. This can help minimize labor and reduce water usage.
