Usage Patterns of Internet of Things for Smart Farming and Advanced Agriculture Implementations

Published 2021-06-30


Despite an ever-growing population, which is projected to exceed nine and a half billion by the middle of the century, the agriculture industry must remain powerful, even though the atmosphere has inherent barriers, such as unfavourable weather and climate change. The agricultural sector would have to implement new technology in order to help them overcome the population increase that is coming. An rise in operating productivity, lower costs, less waste, and improved yield due to the implementation of new agricultural applications in smart farming and precision farming through IoT would help agriculture-related industries maximise their efficiency, save money, cut waste, and boost their yield. It is a costly and advanced method of farming that works to provide safe and safe food for the people. ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) is used to improve agricultural practises. With the aid of sensors (light, humidity, temperature, soil moisture, etc.), a device is designed to track the crop area. This system automates the irrigation system. It is possible for farmers to track the weather and field conditions from anywhere. With smart planting, IoT-based methods are more effective than traditional approaches. As smart farming applications can influence traditional, big farming operations as well as a number of other emerging and agricultural patterns, they can serve as a new source of leverage to lift other agricultural trends such as organic farming, complex or narrow spaces for farms, and improve highly clear farming.
