IoT technology is becoming a fundamental aspect of the agricultural industry, and that shift has been made possible by the cloud. Connected technologies already provide wireless sensor networks to help enhance crop production and yield. Realtime crop data, made possible by cloud computing, also provides information to improve planning, purchasing, inventory control, planting, and harvesting. To maximize production, enhanced farming productivity requires more sensors, irrigation control devices, and connected technologies to achieve an increase in farm production and a reduction in used resources. It’s all of this that can be harnessed by the cloud.
