The International Workshop on Technology for Precision Agriculture and Crops (TeCrop 2019)


in conjunction with

The Sixth International Conference on Internet of Things: Systems, Management and Security (IoTSMS 2019)

Granada, Spain. October 22-25, 2019


Call for Papers:

Precision agriculture is becoming as one of the most important tool to satisfy the ever-increasing worldwide demand for food products of good quality. Agriculture needs to be enhanced by new technologies in order to make it sustainable in a smart way. In the last few years, several Internet of Things (IoT)-based products dedicated to farming have appeared, but there are still some remaining issues, ranging from data acquisition, interpretation, and reliable collection in some potentially harsh radio environments. The last few decades have witnessed the advancement of the IoT and multiple wireless sensor networks (WSNs), in both the academic and industrial worlds

The use of IoT platform and Remote Sensing Data (RSD) to schedule irrigation and fertilization and predict yield may contribute to a more sustainable agriculture in regions of the Mediterranean where irrigation and fertilization are not optimized in terms of timing and quantity. IoT platforms allow a network of devices to communicate, gather data and process information collaboratively in the service of individuals or processes. Technologies can help farmers to practice a more sustainable agriculture, minimizing risks of losing the harvest by providing the resources (water irrigation and fertilizer) needed to secure yield and at the adequate periods. In addition, prediction of grain yield via RSD has additional applications. Remote Sensing Data may help to yield forecasts before harvest and therefore to predict farmers income. Furthermore, the use of software programs is indispensable for the interpretation of the data derived from the Remote Sensing Technologies and then to make decisions of applications in crop fields.

In this workshop, researchers are encouraged to submit papers focused on on high quality, up-to-date innovative original current advances in solutions and research for smart and sustainable agriculture, ranging from IoT, WSN, efficient sensing, cloud/edge computing, smart actuators, etc.
