Agriculture Sensors: How are they used in smart farming?
Precision farming is a widely practised form of smart agriculture using IoT. This method of farming relies on data and analytics extracted from IoT sensors and devices that are placed on farm equipment and surveillance devices used in the process. There are different types of sensors used in agriculture and the most salient ones are air and soil sensors.
The other forms of sensors that one often comes across in precision farming and smart agriculture are GPS based sensors, GIS-based sensors, electrochemical sensors, mechanical sensors, soil moisture sensors, airflow sensors, yield monitoring sensors, VRT sensors, and more.
In this article, we will deep dive on the types of sensors that you should use to maximise the return in precision farming.
