Enabling The Smart Agriculture Revolution - The Future of Farming through the IoT Perspective
Publisher: Beecham Research
Smart Farming is not just for large farms and research centres, but is starting to impact small and medium-sized farms. The farming industry is very receptive to technical innovation and is already embracing the IoT, using information from sensors, machinery and weather stations. It is the ability to capture, harness and analyse vast amounts of data to take informed decisions that is set to revolutionise the agricultural sector and is starting to deliver tangible benefits and measureable ROI (return on investment) for farms of all types and sizes.
While the primary driver behind smart technology is usually to reduce costs, time and wastage, smart farming has also been proven to benefit other areas such as safety and welfare, health, nutrition and sustainability.
The number of applications for smart farming is also growing rapidly, including: yield measurement and quota systems, plant and livestock disease monitoring, remote machine control and diagnostics, greenhouse management, virtual fencing and livestock biology monitoring. And for areas such as high value crop and precision livestock farming, smart fishing and aquaculture, smart technology is helping to increase production efficiencies and generate higher profit margins. https://adalidda.net/posts/qj7ndk5kQiupaYr9b/enabling-the-smart-agriculture-revolution-the-future-of
