Warehousing of foodgrains, proper storage and protection from bad weather effects are important issues for assuring the food security for the people. With the use of wireless sensor network, the environmental parameters inside foodgrain warehouse can be monitored and corrective action can be taken. The deployment of wireless sensor network inside foodgrain storage is practically difficult because infrastructure inside the storage is different compared to other monitoring applications. Energy consumption is a crucial QoS parameter that affects sensor network lifetime. The present work carried out a performance evaluation of QoS parameters, viz. packet delivery ratio, throughput, average end-to-end delay and energy consumption using NS-2 simulator for foodgrain warehouse monitoring.
