Various studies on local crop monitoring are presented in the literature, however there is insufficient research on low-cost IoT weather stations that can obtain weather information over a long period of time. To overcome the difficulties described above, this paper proposes the development of an IoT weather station for low-cost, sustainable and multi-functional agricultural crop monitoring. The objective of the work is to develop a local weather observation device for agricultural crops, to set up a server for storing and providing meteorological information and to perform an analysis of the acquired weather data. The weather station architecture developed and proposed in this project consists of four main blocks: sensor and controller module, power module, local data storage module and data communication module (gateway).
