Sensors and cloud-based technologies are being leveraged to harness the power of the environment — improving crop yields, eliminating pests without an over-reliance on harmful chemicals, and saving finite resources.
Whether applied to sprawling traditional fields or compact urban farms, these connected solutions bring an increased level of monitoring and management to a range of environmental conditions once considered impossible to control.
- New technologies make it possible to efficiently raise crops in harsh environments, bringing financial and food security to communities that struggle to grow crops.
- Urban dwellers can grow and harvest crops on their own more easily, minimizing food transportation costs, reducing waste, and shrinking their carbon footprints.
- Remote crop management creates opportunities for farmers to keep a closer eye on their crops and maximize outcomes, without using harmful pesticides and chemicals.
23% of modules and sensors will make up the $1.3 trillion Internet of Things market predicted in 2019.
70% is the increase in food production needed by 2050 to support the world’s growing population.
60% of farmers believe that precision farming (using data at a single plant level) will be widely adopted by 2030.
Autonomous farms grow fresh premium produce at affordable prices in supermarketing, eliminating waste and negative environmental impact
