IoT has already disrupted any number of industries and agriculture is no exception, which is great news, because according to the United Nations, the global population is expected to increase from 7.7 million today to nearly 10 billion in 2050. In order to meet the needs of the growing population, experts predict food production will have to increase by at least 70%. And all this is happening at a time where we face extreme weather changes, decreasing availability of natural resources such as water, and a reduction in arable land. In a nutshell, farmers are facing unprecedented challenges – and this is where IoT can be of vital use.
