How is IoT technology help or support the agriculture field?

Hi @oliverthomas2314 ,
You may check out some articles on the internet, like this one. Let me know if you need help with any specific thing for your project.

With the exponential growth of world population, according to the UN Food and Agriculture Organization , the world will need to produce 70% more food in 2050, shrinking agricultural lands, and depletion of finite natural resources, the need to enhance farm yield has become critical.
IoT solutions are focused on helping farmers close the supply demand gap , by ensuring high yields, profitability, and protection of the environment. The approach of using IoT technology to ensure optimum application of resources to achieve high crop yields and reduce operational costs is called precision agriculture. IoT in agriculture technologies comprise specialized equipment, wireless connectivity, software and IT services. IoT smart farming solutions is a system that is built for monitoring the crop field with the help of sensors (light, humidity, temperature, soil moisture, crop health, etc.) and automating the irrigation system. The farmers can monitor the field conditions from anywhere.
