In the past few years, Internet of Things has become of common use in various areas, and especially in agriculture. There are many ways to increase the production using technology on agriculture. One of the most used is monitoring systems to follow characteristic properties and, in some cases, to control them by triggering a process that would correct an unwanted situation. Therefore, knowing the usefulness of this type of system, the present work proposes the monitoring of an environment using Internet of Things (IoT): Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) are placed in strategic location in order to collect and send data to a web service. Currently, two topologies were tested to monitor the temperature and soil moisture of a soccer field. The samples were stored in a database and the next step is to integrate the system within the web application that we have already developed.
