Precision Agriculture (PA) is an emerging technology which enables efficient irrigation by employing the Internet of Things (IoT). We split the thesis in two parts. The first part is estimation of humidity level via experimentation. We focus on measuring Received Signal Strength Indicator (RSSI) to obtain humidity level of the field. Thus, we aim at eliminating the humidity sensors which are very expensive and estimate soil moisture through the variation of RSSI values measured by wireless devices buried underground. In the second part of the thesis, we aim at building an accurate and reliable irrigation system by the help of IoT technology via simulations. The advantage brought by our Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is twofold: it minimizes the amount of wasted water during irrigation in farming, and it increases the yield with efficient irrigation. For these purposes, we tested the performance of LoRa protocol in different scenarios in both parts of the thesis.
