The challenge

Hunger and food security are new era challenges that can be solved with IoT technology applied to agricultural crops.

Farm owners and managers are attracted by amount of measurements that sensors can take and how capable predictive and management systems are.

IoT Solution for Agriculture

Hunger and food security are new era challenges that can be solved with IoT technology applied to agricultural crops.

Size of fields Value of crops What factor is usually more important to consider? Sensors recommended Examples
Large fields Low yield crops per hectare Micro-climate factors
  • Temperature, humidity and pressure
  • Weather station
  • Cereals
  • Corn
  • Coffee
Small or medium fields High yield crops per hectare, fragile crops
  • Soil parameters
  • Plant level oriented
  • Soil moisture
  • Soil morphology
  • Leaf humidity
  • Solar radiation
  • Fruits
  • Vegetables
  • Flowers

Applications of IoT Technology for Agriculture

Product Quality Enhancing

Monitoring soil moisture and trunk diameter in vineyards to control the amount of sugar in grapes and grapevine health.

Green Houses

Control micro-climate conditions to maximize the production of fruits and vegetables and its quality.

Irrigation

Selective irrigation in dry zones to reduce the water resources required.

Meteorological Prediction

Study of weather conditions in fields to forecast ice formation, rain, drought, snow or wind changes.

Compost

Control of humidity and temperature levels in alfalfa, hay, straw, etc. to prevent fungus and other microbial contaminants.

Benefits of IoT technology for Agriculture

What precision agriculture looks for…

Increases

  • Higher crop yield
  • Better quality
  • Understand which factors govern crop growth and yields
  • Guaranteeing food security

Reduces

  • Less transport costs: human interventions only when needed.
  • Less time spent
  • Reduce crop losses through disease or adverse weather
  • Cost savings reducing use of fertilizers, pesticides and consumables
  • Fight against droughts, scarcity and famine
