The present study presents the design of a monitoring system that shows climate conditions in a plantain crop by generating alerts of climate variables detected outside the optimal production range. Most plantain crops are controlled by a manual operator, which raises operational costs. The monitoring system uses electronic sensors and wireless communication technologies (XBee and GSM) using an embedded Arduino system. This is interpreted in the QT Creator software by interacting with a database developed in MySQL. The system is composed of two field stations where climate variables reading sensors are located. A monitoring station for supervision is located outside the agricultural area. It is concluded that the monitoring system presented here allows the user to monitor plantain crops remotely and to have access to a history of climate records and out-of-range values that permit avoiding crop production losses.
