Based on the analysis of the development of agricultural mechanization, the trend of agricultural service system reform, agricultural environment protection and the development of information technology, it is possible to realize the precision agriculture. This paper designs the agricultural environmental monitoring system based on the wireless sensor network (WSN). The system can real-timely monitor agriculture environmental information, such as the temperature, humidity, and light intensity. This paper introduces the theory of the monitoring system, and discusses the aspect of hardware and software design of the composed modules, network topology, network communication protocol and the present challenges. Experiments show that the node can achieve agricultural environmental information collection and transmission. The system has the feature of compact in frame, light in weight, steady in performance and facilitated in operation. It greatly improves the agricultural production efficiency and automatic level drastically.
