The world's population has been steadily increasing, and it is expected to reach 10 billion people by 2050. Advances in agricultural technology, such as genetically modified crops, precision agriculture, and data-driven farming, have played a fundamental role in increasing agricultural productivity to meet the demands of a growing population. In an effort to implement new solutions, this thesis is carried out in collaboration with Wirail S.R.L, with the goal of integrating new functionalities to their existing system. In particular, the goal is to develop a cloud-based web application aimed at assisting farmers in the management of their agricultural production. This will be achieved by offering real-time monitoring of weather and soil parameters, thereby providing them with valuable information to make pivotal decisions. This thesis represents an important stride towards a more sustainable and technology-driven future for agriculture, emphasizing the essential role of data-driven decision-making in ensuring food security, resource conservation, and environmental responsibility. It highlights the convergence of technology and agriculture as a force for positive change, laying the foundation for a more efficient and eco-conscious agricultural sector. The introduction provides an overview of the historical significance of agriculture in the evolution of societies, and explores existing solutions for enhancing its efficiency. Then, the overall architecture of the operational Wirail system is showcased, highlighting the underlying technologies and frameworks of each component. Following this, the design and implementation phase of the new components is presented, including their distinctive features, while also shedding light on the rationale behind select decisions. Finally, as this work marks the initial integration of an autonomous weather station into the existing monitoring system, the conclusion offers recommendations for potential improvements and expansions to the application.
