Wireless sensor network is implemented and communicated with the cloud through IPv6. The entire system is applied to precision irrigation systems for lettuce crops in Ecuador. The main objective is to provide optimization system for irrigation water for productive purposes and providing crops with the adequate amount of water needed for surviving and producing. To do that the system has a data acquisition system by sensors and this data is stored in web services. By improving the irrigation system crops can be planted throughout the year including summer, the system has a remarkable result for efficient water savings and lettuce crops.
