Abstract: Recent advances in communications technology and wireless sensor networks made new trends to emerge in agriculture sector. One such new trend is Precision Agriculture. In this paper we are giving brief outline of using Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) in Monitoring water level in the farm area for Precision Agriculture. This algorithm offers a maximum opportunity of delivery of water level information packets/signals to base station as it also computes a threshold as well as does calculates values based on transmission range. This over all computational mechanism helps us to build a robust mechanism for delivery of information to base station thus, reducing the packet loss. Our algorithm which picks up the information for water level can be further optimized by using optimization algorithms, which lead to smoothening of packet delivery ratio, thereby increasing the packet delivery ratio by choosing the right cost path with the help of optimization techniques like genetic algorithm, neural networks.
