5 main features of entry level IoT devices for precision agriculture and field monitoring
When it comes to adoption of new technologies and utilizing advanced monitoring solutions, farming has come a long way in the last years. Real-time, actionable data and decision support based on the actual measurements from the field mean that field operations are easily optimized, reducing the unnecessary expenses, lowering the impact on the environment and producing higher quality yield.
5 reasons to turn to precision agriculture – without hardware
In its core, precision agriculture means basing most of the farming management systems on modern technologies. Making decisions based on intuition and sometimes, sheer luck, is replaced with making decisions based on actual, real-time, data. Its main goal is to reduce farmers’ expenses while at the same time helping them produce and earn more and lower the impact on the environment.
