Connectivity Solution for Smart Farming

The growing presence of technology in smart agriculture is due to the quest for increased efficiency in agricultural production. More and more food need to be produced with the same or even less resources.


Thus, many IoT and AI solutions are helping agribusiness to produce more by monitoring the production chain. It is now possible to use field data together with real-time weather data to optimize information and make more assertive decisions.


Therefore, we see more and more agricultural companies using a lot of technology and making agriculture smarter. For example, IoT technology allows farmers to automate the collection of crop data to increase yields, reduce costs, manage expenses, and improve overall efficiency in many aspects of production.


In addition, by linking smart farming devices, crop lifecycle data, and environmental growing conditions it becomes easy to track real-time information such as:

  • water use

  • nutriment density in the soil

  • adjusting the amount of fertilizers and pesticides used


In this way, farmers can increase production through farm management systems enhanced by IoT and AI (Artificial Intelligence) technology.


To provide all the support that the agribusiness market needs, Macnica ATD Europe offers a variety of IoT product to help you develop the perfect solution for your business.


As we know, working with real-time information is essential, and so Macnica ATD Europe brings Espressif's IoT solutions to collect data and provide connectivity quickly and efficiently.
