Abstract: In agriculture zone it will be very difficult to check and monitor the weather parameter through wires and analog devices during some weather hazards. To overcome this problem here the wireless sensors are used to check and monitor the weather parameters. Monitoring the weather parameters in agriculture zone plays an important role in farming production processes. In this system, a wireless sensor network based on Zigbee/IEEE802.15.4 standard is utilized as a weather station network sending weather information or guideline to the farmers to plan their farm. The weather parameters which are measured by the system are temperature, humidity in the soil, wind speed and wind direction. The system takes advantage of wireless sensor networks which can send signals over far distances by using a mesh topology, this transfers the data and also consumes low power. Therefore, this system can be installed in locations that are difficult to hardwire or have no access to electricity.
