Wireless sensor networks are considered an important part of the modern solutions for greenhouse monitoring. Several communication technologies are already available and have been used both in pilot and commercial installations. Their attractiveness is based on their deployment flexibility and low cost. However, some special features of the greenhouses and their cultivations (variable microclimate conditions, greenhouse construction materials, size and composition of plants, spatiotemporally variable foliage) raise questions about the proper topology and network density in such an environment.
