The IoT are transforming the processes and developments within agriculture, making them an intelligent agriculture. Increasing better productivity and greater efficiency, these being the main objectives of smart agriculture.
Its positioning has given an increase of around 150% producing a large volume of Big Data. The 5G technology is resulting in a generation of greater volumes of information that are allowing to strengthen productivity.
If you want to know what is the internet of things, I can recommend reading this post, The use of Big Data in the Internet of things. In the same way you have to know what big data is, so read this post about big data and how we can use it.
In addition, smart agriculture is providing adequate management of production costs. With the help of sensors and mobile applications are allowing a better control of pests for example. Because thanks to the information collected in the crops, these allow to detect the location of pests.
Thanks to the big data volumes, you can have better decision making at the time of cultivation. Since it allows a broader analysis of how the soil is, and if it is necessary to do preventive work. And so increase the savings in the use of agrochemicals, thus avoiding to contaminate the crops.
