Crop farmers going high-tech

KUALA LUMPUR: Mimos Bhd believes its wireless sensor network (WSN) for precision agriculture can help the local industry to produce quality crops.

β€œThe sensors monitor micro-climate changes and soil nutrients within a specific area very effectively,” said Yusri Alias, head of technology portfolio management at Mimos.

WSN is a wireless network consisting of spatially distributed devices that use sensors to monitor environmental conditions.

Although it is a generic technology that can be applied in many fields β€” such as the monitoring of infrastructure, slope management, and environment watch β€” Mimos is focusing in the area of precision agriculture.
