Wills Smart Technology's Smart iOT Farming
Application of IoT in agriculture could be a life-changer for humanity and the whole planet. Currently, we witness how extreme weather, deteriorating soil and drying lands, collapsing ecosystems that play a crucial role in agriculture make food production harder and harder.
In the meantime, we are not getting fewer. Famous prediction says there will be more than 9 billion people in 2050. That’s a lot of mouths to feed.
We are provide all in one solution on one platform
What is Smart IoT Farming?
Smart agriculture is a broad term that collects agriculture and food production practices powered by the Internet of Things, big data and advanced analytics technology. The most common IoT applications in smart agriculture are:
- Sensor-based systems for monitoring crops, soil, fields, livestock, storage facilities, or any important factor that influences the production.
- Smart agriculture vehicles, drones, autonomous robots and actuators.
- Connected agriculture spaces such as Smart greenhouses or hydroponics.
- Data analytics, visualization and management systems.
Will Smart IoT Farming covers the many applications of the Internet of Things (IoT) technology in farming, agrotech and agriculture. The use of sensors, data collection, wireless networks, cloud platforms and data analysis is already revolutionizing the farming and agricultural sectors. The primary benefits include:
- Increased production.
- Lower production costs.
- Operational efficiencies.
- Real-time and intelligent cost management.
These items will either increase revenues or reduce costs – maximizing your profits. There is real momentum behind IoT technology in agriculture and farming – with many analysts predicting both the market and the adoption of Smart Agriculture technology to sky-rocket as more firms recognize the benefits.
Wills Smart IoT farming: The impact of IoT and AI on agriculture
To combat the growing population, farmers and innovators alike will have to come together to put in place strategies to help farmers meet increasing production demands.
Wills Smart Technology has taken the first step to developing a Smart Agricultural System, to help farmers reduce workload and improve manpower shortages, using the front-end environmental sensors, monitoring systems, and equipment controllers to maintain the field and monitor the crops conditions remotely.
Climate plays a very critical role in farming. And having improper knowledge about climate heavily deteriorates the quantity and quality of the crop production. But IoT solutions enable you to know the real-time weather conditions. Sensors are placed inside and outside of the agriculture fields. They collect data from the environment which is used to choose the right crops which can grow and sustain in the particular climatic conditions. The whole IoT ecosystem is made up of sensors that can detect real-time weather conditions like humidity, rainfall, temperature and more very accurately. There are numerous no. of sensors available to detect all these parameters and configure accordingly to suit your smart farming requirements. These sensors monitor the condition of the crops and the weather surrounding them. If any disturbing weather conditions are found, then an alert is sent. What gets eliminated is the need for the physical presence during disturbing climatic conditions which eventually increases the productivity and help farmers to reap more agriculture benefits.
Precision Agriculture/Precision Farming is one of the most innovative applications of IoT in Agriculture. It makes farming practice more precise and controlled by realizing smart farming applications such as livestock monitoring, vehicle tracking, field observation, and inventory monitoring. The goal of precision farming is to analyze the data, generated via sensors, to react accordingly. Precision Farming helps farmers to create data with the help of sensors and analyze that information to take intelligent and quick decisions. There are numerous precision farming techniques like irrigation management, livestock management, vehicle tracking and many more which play a vital role in increasing efficiency and effectiveness. With the help of Precision farming, you can analyze soil conditions and other related parameters to improved operational efficiency. Additionally, you can also detect the real-time working conditions of the connected devices to monitor water and nutrient level.
To make our greenhouses smart, IoT has enabled weather stations to automatically adjust the climate conditions according to a particular set of instructions. Adoption of the IoT in Greenhouses has eliminated the human intervention, thus making the entire process cost-effective and increasing accuracy at the same time. For example, using solar-powered IoT sensors builds modern and inexpensive greenhouses. These sensors collect and transmit the real-time data which helps in monitoring the greenhouse state very precisely in real-time. With the help of the sensors, the water consumption and greenhouse state can be monitored via emails or SMS alerts. Automatic and smart irrigation is carried out with the help of IoT. These sensors help to provide information on the pressure, humidity, temperature and light levels.
Technological advancements have almost revolutionized agricultural operations. The introduction of agriculture drones is trending disruption. The Ground and Aerial drones are utilized for assessment of crop health, crop monitoring, planting, crop spraying, and field analysis. With proper strategy and planning based on real-time data, drone technology has given a high rise and makeover to the agriculture industry. Drones with thermal or multispectral sensors identify the areas that require changes in irrigation. Once the crops start growing, sensors indicate their health and calculate their vegetation index. Eventually, smart drones have reduced their environmental impact. The results have been such that there has been a massive reduction and much lower chemical reaching the groundwater.
