|Abstract: ||Tomato is a very important crop in the Mediterranean region in general and in Portugal in
particular being the production for fresh consumption made essentially in greenhouses.
Botrytis cinerea Pers.: Fr. is the causal agent of grey mould disease and is one of the most
important diseases affecting greenhouse tomato crops, high relative humidity and the presence
of free water on the plant surfaces have been recognized as favourable to the development of
The availability of a early warning system providing to the tomato grower alerts with
information of the potential favoured conditions for the disease appearance in its early stages
or even before can have a very positive impact in reducing the economic and environmental
impacts due to a more rational and efficient disease control management.
Today we have the necessary technology to build and launch an Internet based early warning
system for grey mould disease in greenhouse tomato crop supported by a wireless sensor
network. In this paper a prototype for such a system is presented.
From the research conducted until the moment the proposed solution is viable and the next
step will be to validate it in the field in different locations and with distinct greenhouses
