IoT in Agriculture
IoT provides a host of different opportunities to increase efficiency and effectiveness in the agricultural sector. Internet of Things (IoT) could give a new direction of innovative research and applications in the agricultural domain with the introduction of the “Smart Farming” concept.
Smart Farming refers to the leveraging of new age technologies like sensors, drones, robotics, data analytics, geo-location and interfacing them through specialized software. This allows a farmer to remotely monitor and take actions. The driving force for this could be IoT connecting all the different dots to automate the farming process and make it data driven.
