Intelligent agriculture and agricultural sensors
What is smart agriculture
Sensor technology is the core technology in intelligent agriculture. As a high-order product of modern agricultural development, sensor technology can be under the macro-control of the Internet of Things. According to the planting characteristics of different agricultural products, the environmental factors needed for crop growth were monitored. Through this intelligent monitoring, it is possible to ensure that various environmental factors are always kept within the optimum range for the growth of crops. So as to further improve planting efficiency and yield.
Sensors such as temperature and humidity, wind speed and direction, illuminance and gas are commonly used in smart agriculture to monitor factors affecting crop growth such as temperature and humidity, wind speed and direction. The wind speed and direction sensor in the smart agriculture monitoring system is mainly used outdoors and can form a weather station. The shading and heat preservation functions in greenhouse are mainly realized by shading net and rolling film. If the wind speed is too high, it will cause damage to the sunshade net or the film. When the wind speed and direction sensor is installed, the system will calculate the value returned by the sensor detection. When the wind speed is too high, the sunshade net and film can be recovered in time to avoid loss.
The CARBON dioxide sensor in the smart agriculture monitoring system is mainly applied in the greenhouse, which can monitor the carbon dioxide concentration in the environment in real time and upload the data to the cloud platform. The manager can judge whether the shed needs air ventilation according to the carbon dioxide concentration. Make sure carbon dioxide levels are always in the right range for crop growth. This ensures a healthy growing environment for crops and improves yield and quality.
