A system to monitor and trace the yields and distribution of agricultural products is an important precision agricultural application. The system can be used to predict the next year's yields or provide the distribution channel of agricultural products from farmers to customers. Existing traceability and monitoring systems, usually, are implemented by using both wireless sensor network (WSN) and radio frequency identification (RFID) techniques. In this paper, we propose a system architecture

We define events to trace and monitor agricultural products, and our event detection engine detects those events by using the current location and the status of each sensor node. We describe the overall architecture of the proposed system and implementation details.
