Looks like Sparkfun has some cool cellular and wireless stuff. Your project sounds pretty interesting too, hope it all goes well!

Thank you rskup. Overall, the project is an exploration of how computer engineering can be a help to agriculture. Work completed so far is here: https://github.com/SoothingMist/Embedda ... on-Control. One paper has been published into the peer-reviewed literature and another paper has been accepted.

This present effort will look at combining soil-moisture estimations, weather data, and soil-moisture sensors. Updates for this part are posted here: https://www.researchgate.net/project/Pr ... rigation-3, under "Project Log". Beyond ordering parts (the Sparkfun cellular module is still on order), nothing concrete has been accomplished. But, I guess finding out what does not work counts as "progress".

My hope is that the results will enable inexpensive water-use improvements for farm irrigation in drought-stricken areas.
