With the Internet of Things (IoT) being adopted faster than ever before, you will already be used to seeing connected devices in your everyday life. From smart speakers, health and fitness devices, home automation solutions and automotive systems to smart cities and smart industrial systems.
Surely then, with all this technology becoming common place in every possible industry, it is only right we integrate our farming and agricultural industries into the all seeing, all knowing cloud too? Well, this is already happening on a mass scale and almost every corner of farming touched by IoT has seen tremendous improvements in efficiency, yield and profits.
Seeing new technology in the farming world is nothing new. The industry has gone through radical changes over the years, with the introduction of ever smarter agricultural plant machinery to better weather forecasting, more accurate livestock tracking and more precisely controlled artificial environments all working to improve the industry.
In this article, we look at exactly how the next generation of IoT sensors can be integrated into modern farms and examine their benefits. So if you are looking for the next competitive edge and are thinking of investing into ‘Smart Farming’ technology, this one’s for you.
