Smart agriculture solutions reap many benefits. Remote crop, orchard, facility, and livestock monitoring systems can help agriculture managers, farmers, and ranchers to transform agriculture.
Monitoring real-time data alerts on mobile devices allows for a new level of efficiency, making it easy to keep an eye on operations, crops, and livestock with Monitoring Sensors equipment connected to the Internet of Things (IoT). In 2020, 19.7 million full- and part-time jobs were related to the agricultural and food sectors—10.3 percent of the U.S. total. AireSpring’s IoT solutions can help make your smart agriculture intelligence a key factor in efficiency and profitability.
Agriculture Use Cases
There are many potential use cases for agriculture and the Internet of Things (IoT). Some examples include:
Soil and crop monitoring: Sensors can be placed in fields to monitor soil moisture, temperature, and nutrient levels, and provide real-time data to farmers. This can help farmers optimize irrigation and fertilization and improve crop yields.
Pest and disease control: Sensors can be used to monitor for pests and diseases, and alert farmers when action is needed. This can help prevent infestations and reduce the use of pesticides.
Livestock tracking: IoT devices can be used to track the location and health of livestock, and provide alerts if animals are in distress. This can help farmers respond quickly to any issues and improve the overall health and well-being of their animals.
Precision agriculture: IoT technologies can be used to collect data on things like weather patterns, soil conditions, and crop growth, and use this information to optimize farming practices. This can help farmers save resources and improve crop yields.
Supply chain management: IoT devices can be used to track the movement of produce from farm to market, providing real-time visibility into the supply chain and helping to ensure the quality and freshness of food.
