Wireless system is one of the technologies currently applied in agriculture to improve quality, save labour costs, increase yields, and conserve water. A real-time wireless monitoring system for measuring climatic environment parameters of rain shelter house (RSH) for chili plantation was developed. The wireless monitoring system integrates the hardware and software components for the measurement of environment parameters that can affect the growth of chili, such as temperature, humidity, solar radiation and etc. The system described here offers real potential for monitoring spatially environment variables. This paper describes the component for the developed wireless monitoring system of chili (capsicum) plantation discusses the experimental results acquired and the relationships between those parameters. The experimental results showed our proposed system is very feasible for future applications towards precision agriculture and it has potential to offer great technologies in modernizing the agricultural sector.
