Pest detection and control techniques using wireless sensor network: A review
Saeed Azfar, Adnan Nadeem, Abdul Basit
Pakistan is an agricultural country which depends on agriculture and crops for its economic survival. WSN is an emerging technology all over the world and it is used in agriculture for monitoring different parameters. In this paper we review literature related to general agriculture monitoring, pest disease monitoring, and different pest control mechanisms. We analyze and classify pest control mechanism in technological, non-technological and integrated solutions. Then we compare the pest control mechanisms based on their effectiveness, cost and other performance parameters. Finally, we analyze the feasibility of pest control mechanisms based on the use of WSN for farmers in developing countries.
