Nowadays, farmers mainly adopt watermelon grafting technology to avoid wilt with the survival rate of grafted seedlings affected by temperature, humidity and light of the environment. Assurance of optimal environmental conditions has a direct influence on watermelon seedlings growth performance. At present, farmers usually observe the environmental temperature only through a thermometer, and manage the watermelon seedlings by experience in rural areas. Therefore, in order to solve the problem of poor accuracy and waste of labor, in this paper, we use the devices based on the wireless sensor network to real time monitor the parameters in the plastic greenhouse of watermelon nursery, including temperature, humidity and light. Then the environmental parameters will be sent to the monitoring system and be analyzed. If the values of parameters beyond the given threshold, the monitoring system will give a warn to the administrator to improve the environment, which, to some extent, ensures the survival rate and produces healthy watermelon seedlings consequently increasing farmerís income
