Abstract

An IoT-based solution for the improvement of the yield in a system of production in which one associates vegetal and animal productions is related in this paper. We deployed a sensor network at the Research on Soil Fertility Laboratory (LERF) and at the Aquaculture and Aquatic Biodiversity Research Unit (UR-ABAQ) of Nazi BONI University. Through this network, we are able to check in real time and continue the pH, the dissolved oxygen and the water temperature of a hatchery of the UR-ABAQ. Also the soil moisture of banana, papaya, and maize is constantly checked, respectively, at UR-ABAQ and LERF sites. A weather station has been deployed to monitor the weather of these research units’ site. The equipment deployed is energy-efficient because of its solar panel and has a LoRa radio antenna for communication. The data collected is stored into a cloud platform by two gateways connected to the Internet via 3G MoDem and equipped with a LoRa antenna.
