The world of technology is offering many solutions to help farmers better monitor and manage their farms. With the implementation of the Internet of Things (IoT) in many areas of our lives from homes, cities, healthcare, and manufacturing, the time has come to implement IoT into the agriculture industry through smart farming.
Let’s take a moment to answer the question we know you are probably asking yourself right now.
What is the Internet of Things?
Internet of Things is the connection of the internet into everyday objects. These objects can be embedded with sensors, processing ability, software, and other technologies that connect and exchange data with other devices and systems over the Internet or other communications networks.
The implementation of the Internet of things within agriculture has been called smart farming.
Internet of Things in Agriculture
IoT technology for agriculture allows farmers to automate real-time data collection to increase production volumes, reduce costs, manage expenses, and improve overall efficiency in many different aspects of agriculture.
Pipe Ag software has been developed to help farmers implement technology into their farming operations in the following ways.
Pipe Ag software uses GPS tracking and addressless directions to help farmers manage all the activity on their farms. Through a quick glance at a screen, farmers can know where their trucks and combines are. Addressless directions can be used to send workers to specific locations without estimations or using vague landmark directions.
Pipe Ag helps you as a farmer gather valuable data. Utilizing digital farm records will help you track and manage grain cart weights, elevator tickets, and more. This data can be used to make informed decisions when managing your farm and planning for future crops.
Improved Crop Quality
Technology and data-driven farming practices can help map out the crop cycle. Additionally, tools like compaction mapping can ensure healthier soil and enhance your crop yield.
