One way to address agricultural issues and increase the quality and quantity of agricultural production is using sensing technology to make farms more "intelligent" and more connected thorugh the so-called "precision agriculture" also known as smart farming.
The IoT is set to push the future of farming to the next level. Smart agriculture is already becoming more commonplace among farmers, and high tech farming is quickly becoming the standard thanks to agricultural drones and sensors..
Smart Farming IoT Applications
