This paper deals with the collection of
information (soil moisture, soil temperature, etc.) in an
agricultural plantation athwart a mesh network (a
network in which all the hosts are closely connected
without a central hierarchy forming a net-like
structure) and was carried out at the computer and
telecommunications laboratory of the national advanced
school of engineering of the University of Maroua in the
far north of Cameroon, and was conducted in order to
provide farmers with a means of managing agricultural
activities and mapping the field by highlighting the
heterogeneity of the soil in terms of temperature,
moisture and soil chemical properties.
