Agriculture has transformed in the last few decades from small to medium farming operations to highly industrialized, commercial farming that is concentrated among a few large corporations.
Growing crops and raising livestock and fish has become an increasingly mechanized and computer-driven operation. This allows corporations to treat agriculture like manufacturing in the sense that measurements, data, and control is very important to manage costs, maximize yields, and boost profits.
The Internet of Things (IoT) in Agriculture (IoTAg) represents the use of technology wherein agricultural planning and operations becomes connected in ways previously impossible if it were not for advances in sensors, communications, data analytics and other areas.
The commercial agriculture industry is rapidly becoming one of the most IoT data-driven markets. With the emergence of M2M, IoT, and advanced data analytics technologies, data is becoming available that was previously uncollectible.
The application of various AgriTech analytics tools and methodologies, such as predictive analytics will provide substantial enhancements to agriculture operations. Virtually every aspect of agriculture that can be automated, digitally planned, and managed will benefit from IoT technologies and solutions.
Accordingly, IoTAg will change the way agricultural operations and farms are managed, which will bring various benefits to farming, including enhanced crop quality and quantity; improved use of resources and farm equipment; real-time monitoring of farms, animals, and machines; and automated irrigation systems, fertilizer spraying, and pest control.
Another M2M/IoT and data-driven shift in traditional farm management is evolving to a software-managed operation that is managed by people unskilled in traditional farming practices.
The agriculture sector is increasingly controlled by companies that are not conventional experts of agriculture, such as farmers and traditional farm value chain, including farm equipment makers, seed suppliers, and producers and suppliers of plant foods and chemicals.
We see a transition from conventional agriculture to Farm Management Systems. With this shift, software developers and predictive data analytics companies will take over control of end-to-end agricultural operations.
