World population growth results in a grand challenge to develop new and more sustainable agricultural methods. Wireless underground sensor networks (WUSN) are an example of how nano and microsensors may be used in the future to monitor and optimize agricultural production. This short communication examines the recent advancements toward the realization of wireless underground sensor networks and a few key challenges that can be addressed by the improvements in nanotechnology.
