Enhancing the network life, transmitting and receiving the data periodically are essential for any application. In this paper we are trying to enhance the network life by working on various layers. To enhance the network life hexagonal topology is chosen. Simulation parameters are chosen for agricultural application. Reducing the control signal in the network and also providing maintenance of enhances the network life.
