ABSTRACT
We report on preliminary experiences with deploying a large-scale sensor network (about 100 nodes) for a pilot in precision agriculture. The pilot did not answer the initial research questions, but instead revealed many engineering problems typically overlooked by (computer) scientists evaluating their work by means of simulation. The deployment prompted us to rethink our development process and includes important lessons for the WSN research community as a whole.
