Traditional agriculture is transforming into smart agriculture due to the prominence of the Internet of Things (IoT). Low-cost and low-power are the key factors to make any IoT network useful and acceptable to the farmers. In this paper, we have proposed a low-power, low-cost IoT network for smart agriculture. For monitoring the soil moisture content, we have used an in-house developed sensor. In the proposed network, the IITH mote is used as a sink and sensor node which provides low-power communication. We have evaluated our network with state of the art networks, proposed for agriculture monitoring. Power and cost are the two metrics used for evaluation of these networks. Results show that the proposed network consumes less power and has prolonged lifetime in the agriculture field.
