IoT solutions help agricultural enterprises efficiently manage production and boost yields by providing detailed information about what is happening in the fields.
Farmers can get precise insights into irrigation, insect infestations, fertilisation, and livestock welfare. However, IoT and M2M device management require strong, uninterrupted, and simple connectivity.
IoT and M2M solutions help farmers monitor and manage, thus increasing productivity
Crop management:By monitoring soil/irrigation and crop health, farmers can optimise yields.
Soil monitoring:Dedicated probes gather data for analysis of conditions such as soil temperature, salinity, and moisture.
Smart irrigation: Automated irrigation systems collect soil data to deploy water and nutrients efficiently.
Weather monitoring:Weather stations capture data for analysis to guide farmers on optimum sowing and harvesting.
Pest control:Detecting pests, their location, activity, and behaviour pattern provide insight into infestations and when to apply pesticides.
Drones-as-a-Service:Deployed for crop surveillance, planting crops, pesticide spraying and more.
Improvement in productivity
IoT and M2M solutions will mean a fundamental improvement in productivity for an industry facing many challenges. There is pressure to increase productivity as the world’s growing population demands more food. At the same time, agricultural businesses must contend with limited arable land, finite water resources, unpredictable climate conditions, and shifting structures of the farming workforce.
Farmers need solutions that ensure high yields, increased profitability and better protection of the environment. That is possible with smart farming and IoT solutions, where farmers can monitor and manage the business to increase productivity.
However, the farmers also need a simple IoT management solution, not involving many partners and service agreements. Farmers require seamless and robust M2M device management to gather data at all times.
