Introduction The use of sensor technologies is more and more applicable in agriculture nowadays. In the domain of precision farming (PF), it is an inevitable aid for the generation of site-specific spatial and temporal information to support crop management strategies [1–3]. Within the last decade, several agricultural machinery and sensor construction companies have established a multitude of sensor systems for sensing soil- and plant-related parameters, as well as for sensing environmental impact factors, influencing the development of the cultivated plants . Most of these sensor systems are designed for: (i) stationary use, e.g., soil moisture sensing networks [4,5]; (ii) hand-held use, e.g., fluorescence and hyper-spectral reflection sensors ; or (iii) mobile use on ground-based sensor platforms, e.g., fluorescence, hyper-spectral reflection and ultrasonic sensors, which are mounted on tractors [7–10]. 2.

Abstract This paper gives an overview of the wireless sensor network, studies its application in precision farming, and its importance for improving the agriculture in Egypt.
An example for using wireless sensor network in cultivating the potato crop in Egypt is given, and it is shown that the cost of the system with respect to the yearly benefit from exporting potato crop after recovering the loss from its export preventing (this loss is estimated to be 2 billion pounds which is the value of the potato export to Russia annually), after the expected consequence of increasing the yield size and quality, after the expected savings in the resources used in cultivation such as the fertilizer and irrigation water, and after recovering the monetary loss results from the harms caused by excessive use of pesticides, is acceptable, and it can be said that this cost can be recovered in one year.

It is vital that the agricultural sector proactively adopt measures encouraging innovation, if it is to remain competitive and sustainable.
The emergence of connected agriculture — which, inter alia, uses high-tech sensors to monitor farms' production and animal health problems — offers potential savings throughout the food-production chain. It represents a step forward for the automation of transport and logistics, which would bring agricultural products closer to consumers, and would enable faster and more accurate management of warehouse and retail stocks.
Precision agriculture — which involves data-based technologies, including satellite-navigation and Internet tools — could help EU farmers to manage crops, and to cut fertiliser and pesticide use. However, there is evidence that the links between research, farmers and the food industry are too weak. Too many innovation opportunities remain unexploited and too many of the sector’s questions regarding research remain unanswered. Rev. sci. tech. Off. int.

Introduction With the rapid rise in demand for both agricultural crop quantity and quality and with the growing concern of non-point pollution caused by modern farming practices, the efficiency and environmental safety of agricultural production systems have been questioned (Gebbers and Adamchuk, 2010). While implementing best management practices around the world, it was observed that the most efficient quantities of agricultural inputs vary across the landscape due to various naturally occurring, as well as man-induced, differences in key productivity factors such as water and nutrient supply. Identifying and understanding these differences allow for varying crop management practices according to locally defined needs (Pierce and Nowak, 1999). Such spatially-variable management practices have become the central part of precision agriculture (PA) management strategies being adapted by many practitioners around the world (Sonka et al., 1997). 2.
