Can smart environment increase crop production?

Technology is rapidly advancing and taking over the world. It has been noticed that we are using the technological devices and apps in every field of life. The most surprising part is that we are even using technology in agricultural field. It is helping us in different ways to increase the yield as well as to assure that we increase the production of healthy crops. The rate at which demand is increasing there are chances that soon technology will help to meet the crop demand in the world.

The 2016 Global Opportunity Report recognizes Smart Farming, otherwise called Precision Agriculture, as the main open door for organizations. Savvy Farming incorporates Internet of Things (IoT), or associated gadgets that assemble important information, that are helping ranchers with the difficulties that they look consistently.

IoT/Smarter gadgets are helping ranchers to remotely screen hardware, yields, and animals; measure precipitation, soil dampness, or harvest water request; and acquire information on climate, water utilization and domesticated animals encouraging and create.

IoT in Agriculture Today

Horticultural apparatus and hardware makers have begun to execute availability into their items that enable agriculturists to monitor their armada, screen work advance, perform remote administrator bolster and investigate information continuously.

Different kinds of innovation utilized as a part of accuracy horticulture today include:


Farmers can introduce sensor equipment that can quantify water pressure, microclimate, overhang biomass and chlorophyll. Domesticated animals sensors can tell agriculturists of a wiped out creature in time for the creature to be expelled and in this way keeping the spread of sickness. Different illustrations incorporate innovation that gathers information from GPS yield maps to enable agriculturists to decide diverse supplement blends that ought to be showered for the following harvest.


Some of the propelled Drones have sensor and imaging capacities that are utilized for edit exploring, field looking over, and to screen trim wellbeing.

Smartphone Apps

Farmers are beginning to utilize cell phone applications to track climate, compose real esatate statistical data points, list hardware serial numbers, and check for grain offers and fates costs.


Agricultural robots are utilized to robotize rural procedures, for example, reaping, organic product picking, furrowing, soil upkeep, weeding, planting, and water system.

A Growing Agtech Industry

Developing innovations in agribusiness have offered ascend to rural innovation, or agtech, new companies like Bovcontrol, Phytech, Cropzilla Software, and Farmnote, to give some examples. Some of these new companies controlling the eventual fate of cultivating and horticulture, particularly for bigger business agriculturists, have been sponsored by corporate financial specialists, including Mitsui, Monsanto, and Syngenta.

These organizations create innovations that will upset cultivating, including ranch administration programming, sensors, accuracy farming and prescient information examination, creature date, apply autonomy and automatons, and keen water system.

These cutting edge applications won't just build efficiency, yet in addition create enhanced quality agrarian items. We trust that IoT can change horticulture and help increment the developing interest of sustenance generation.
