Innovative Plant Protection Techniques Using Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) and Forecasting Software


Description of the project offered: 
This system is suitable for forecasting the impact of certain environmental factors on the quantity and quality of the fruit yield. Equally important is the forecast for disease incidence and security. Consequently, the right action would be taken in due time. The development and adoption of appropriate forecasting model(s) would in fact, lead to minimizing the application of fungicides, thus producing crops with the minimal fungicide residues. Also, we will work on using some medicinal plants instead of fungicides for plant protection. The development of a decision support system would be a great help to the producers in the form of reducing production cost, obtaining more acceptable product for export as well as maintaining healthier environment and curbing hazards to humans and animals.
