A wireless sensor node is self-assured by a processor, local memory, sensors, radio, battery and a base station accountable for receiving and processing data collected by the nodes. They carry out cooperative activities due to limited resources such as battery, processor and memory. Nowadays, the applications of these networks are copious, varied and the applications in agriculture are still budding. One interesting purpose is in environmental monitoring and greenhouse control, where the crop conditions such as weather and soil do not depend on natural agents. To control and observe the environmental factors, sensors and actuators are necessary. Under these conditions, these devices must be used to make a distributed measure, scattering sensors all over the greenhouse using distributed clustering mechanism. This paper reveals an initiative of environmental monitoring and greenhouse control using a sensor network. The hardware realization shows periodic monitoring and control of greenhouse gases in an enhanced manner. Future effort is concentrated in application of the same mechanism using wireless sensor network.
