Agricultural technology is developing in a rapid pace and there is a lot of money being invested in Agricultural technology or shortened AgTech startups. AgTech works side by side with IoT since it uses soil sensors, cameras, weather stations etc. that gather data about farming operations and send data via different connectivity options to the edge or the cloud.
All that data can then be used by algorithms or other software and turned into various insights, reports or automatic predefined actions. This artilce lists several farm management platforms and also companies that are selling smart fungicides, using bio growth stimulants, selling futuristic greenhouse, managing food waste, bio fabricating leather or using spider venom as an insecticide. Take a look, very interesting stuff.
New startup companies are finding ways to grow more with less using new technologies and IoT, AI and genomic techniques. These startups are typically later acquired by bigger Ag players.
There is another interesting article from the same guys about IoT and AgTech where IoT is used for: Weather Prediction at the Farm, Monitoring Grain Storage, Pest Management, Utility Management and Drone Deployment.
This blog is focused on simplifying and promoting the complex but also very interesting world of IoT, 5G, networking and digitalization.
Blog’s aim is to give short, interesting and useful information and content to business people and everyone interested in IoT/5G business development, entrepreneurship and practical use cases.
The blog presents concepts and analyses, use cases, product comparisons, news roundups, interviews, educational videos, tutorials, reports and whitepapers.
If you need a machine and don’t buy it, then you will ultimately find that you have paid for it and don’t have it.
Time isn't a commodity, something you pass around like a cake. Time is the substance of life. When anyone asks you to give your time, they're really asking for a chunk of your life.
To attain knowledge, add things every day. To attain wisdom, subtract things every day.
