Here’s What’s Working with the Internet of Things … and What’s Next | PrecisionAg

With the advent of the Internet of Things (IoT), we are now seeing farmers use more wireless technologies to increase the quality and efficiency of production to achieve higher yields. IoT has opened the door for engineers to develop smart farming solutions to meet the world’s growing food demands. IoT will compel the industry to rethink processes and require the deployment of new technologies (sensors, wireless networks, applications/platforms) to ingest the massive amount of agricultural data and identify the actionable data that will help farmers meet their goals. The decrease in cost of cellular connectivity and device modules, combined with the emergence of low-power wide-area networks (LPWAN) LoRa and Sigfox, has created an explosion of new tools to deploy precision agriculture solutions. Research organization BI Intelligence has predicted that IoT device installations in the smart agriculture world will increase to 75 million by 2020. According to research firm Global Market
