IoT & How It’s Applied in Agriculture

Date : 6-5-2019

IoT Applications in Agriculture

Automation technology and the Internet of Things (IoT) are having a profound effect on the way we live our lives.

Technology and devices are coming onto the market in ever-increasing numbers to make the things we do on a daily basis easier and less labour-intensive.

IoT has also had a major influence on the professional sphere, with countless applications in industry enabling businesses to work more smarter and more efficiently. In this article, we look at the effect it has had on one of the most important sectors in business – Agriculture.

Automation of Greenhouses

As IoT is able to monitor environmental data, it can be used to automate the control of conditions within greenhouses for optimum growing. Programmed with a set of defined parameters, sensors are able to evaluate the conditions within an enclosed space like a greenhouse and automate an action to manipulate levels of heat, light and humidity.

Management of Crops

Using similar monitoring IoT hardware, precise crop management can be achieved using sensors to collect specific data. Whether monitoring temperature, precipitation, growth or even pest infestations and diseases, farmers are able to precisely manage their crops for maximum yields.

Livestock Management

The benefits of IoT in agriculture are not limited to crops, as it can also be used to monitor the growth and health of livestock. Able to keep check on the activity, movement, nutrition and temperature of the animals they’re attached to (usually on a neck-worn collar device), farmers are kept fully aware of issues the moment they arise. IoT can even help farmers to keep track of group or herd data.

End to End Overview Management

The overall productivity of a farm’s overall operation can be fine tuned using a variety of sensors that feed logistical data to a central dashboard. Being able to view detailed metrics like these through a single interface makes the job of running an efficient farm that much easier to achieve.

In Summary

The potential applications for IoT in agriculture, as with many industries, are pretty endless, as processes are able to be remotely monitored and controlled for maximum efficiency of output. And with automation technologies and IoT hardware evolving at a pace, who knows what will be possible in the coming years both in industry and in the home.
