Agricultural technology is developing in a rapid pace and there is a lot of money being invested in Agricultural technology or shortened AgTech startups. AgTech works side by side with IoT since it uses soil sensors, cameras, weather stations etc. that gather data about farming operations and send data via different connectivity options to the edge or the cloud.
All that data can then be used by algorithms or other software and turned into various insights, reports or automatic predefined actions. This artilce lists several farm management platforms and also companies that are selling smart fungicides, using bio growth stimulants, selling futuristic greenhouse, managing food waste, bio fabricating leather or using spider venom as an insecticide. Take a look, very interesting stuff.
New startup companies are finding ways to grow more with less using new technologies and IoT, AI and genomic techniques. These startups are typically later acquired by bigger Ag players.
There is another interesting article from the same guys about IoT and AgTech where IoT is used for: Weather Prediction at the Farm, Monitoring Grain Storage, Pest Management, Utility Management and Drone Deployment.
