IoT in farming or digital farming involves the incorporation of advanced technologies into prevailing farming practices so as to improve the production capacity and the quality of products served. Finding accuracy in location using a global positioning system (GPS), using self-driving tractors, devices to sense soil moisture, etc makes a digital farm more efficient and sustainable when compared to the traditional farming methods. Technological advancement can bring vast changes in every aspect of farming starting from planting seeds to harvesting. Automated robots, drones, sensors and IOT are expected to the main three aspects of the smart farm.
Satellites, 3D Printers, Drones- technology is changing the whole world and the agriculture sector is catching up. The subsequent pace in serving food for the fast-growing population involves the use of automated tractors, sensors, precision farming, etc to quantify farming in the most modern ways. In short, the vast collection of IoT devices have changed the way the world looks at farming.
