There is a remarkable growth in the field of Information Communication Technology (ICT) in Developing Countries. Telecommunication is one of the areas where ICT is recording an ongoing rapid change. Mobile phones are becoming more and more pervasive in daily scenario; and among the beneficiaries of this are farmers. Farmers are using mobile phones to execute their farming business and access market information. At the same time, Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are also showing a result in developed part of our world. WSNs potential in sensing various environmental condition, their affordability and applicability motivated conducting of this master thesis. Hence, the objective of thesis work is to investigate and identify how the use of mobile phones in conjunction with WSN enable farmers monitor and control their farm field in the region of Oromia, Meki area, Ethiopia.
