IoT devices

As such, farm producers and managers are encashing on capacities of IoT devices like automated steering systems, GNSS & GPS systems, and sensors for files mapping, temperature monitoring, soil sampling, irrigation management, and various other applications.

“The devices mentioned above do make way for real-time insights on ways of improving agricultural practices for more efficiency,” according to the researchers.

Adoption of drone technology

According to the reserachers the ever-increasing adoption of drone technology to monitor crops, identify planting flaws, and detect and control diseases and pests is the other factor driving the precision farming market.
