Analyst report: Smart agriculture
A new wave of IoT solutions leads the way to more sustainable farming
Global demand for agricultural products is on the rise. By applying advanced technologies in agricultural production, farmers are able to measure and manage the variability of crops in the fields and animals within the herds. Connected equipment, sensors and controllers are being deployed across farms worldwide to increase yield in order to meet the growing demand for food driven by population growth and urbanisation.
According to analyst firm Berg Insight’s latest research in the space, the agricultural sector is significantly underpenetrated by IoT technologies but set to experience a wave of technology adoption, writes Fredrik Stålbrand, a senior analyst at Berg Insight.
