What are the Benefits of Smart Farming Systems?
Smart farming systems reduce waste, improve productivity, and enable management of a greater number of resources through remote sensing, writes Shawn Chandler on IoT Agenda.
In traditional farming methods, it was a mainstay for the farmer to be out in the field, constantly monitoring the land and condition of crops. But with larger and larger farms, it has become more challenging for farmers to monitor everything everywhere. This is especially true with microfarming, where many remote plots of land may be farmed for different crops, requiring different conditions and precise control of soil and water.
