Foundation Projects

Design and Development of Precision Agriculture Information System

Department of Computer Science & Engineering, University of Dhaka

Agricultural production depends on many factors, including the seed and soil quality, the amount of water and nutrition parameters and the artificial or natural nutrients from agro-chemicals.

Therefore, it is a complex system involving multiple control parameters. The goal of this project is to address the main issues and problems associated with Precision Agriculture. Precision agriculture can have immense effect over the ecological and environmental balance by using less, but more accurate quantities of water, fertilizer, herbicides and farm equipment. The sensor devices and GPRS based wireless data communication will be used for data collection process and a web based information system will be developed for presenting analyzed and processed information.
