Abstract

Irrigation facilities are spread over a demand area in a low density and exposed in the field requiring efficient operation and maintenance. Thus, it could be more efficient to manage an irrigation system when it comes with wireless sensor network (WSN) using RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) application. A WSN, a kind of ubiquitous sensor network composed of wireless network, RFID and database management system was developed for agricultural water management in terms of operational status and maintenance requirements. Identification code for RFID tag was designed and an application for RFID reader was developed for field data collection, and a database management system was constructed for managing irrigation facility attributes. The system was installed in I-dong irrigation districts in Gyounggi-province, Korea and the operated results showed the applicability of the WSN for agricultural water management.
