In order to match the anticipated 2050 world population of 9.7 billion, agriculture production will need to increase 69% between 2010 and 2050. This drastic increase requires more innovative agricultural techniques.
Applying the internet of things (IoT) in farming would allow our world to meet this demand. IoT in agriculture provides insight on crops and livestock that prevents illness among animals and keeps crops growing efficiently. These IoT solutions aren’t possible without reliable connectivity, and that’s what we provide at SIMON IoT.
IoT connectivity optimizes yields and increases sustainability in agriculture
The ability to track weather among all your crops in real-time, wearable IoT devices that track animal locations and vitals, and sensors that report on how well pest control is working are just a few examples of IoT in agriculture.
What SIMON IoT Brings to the Table for Fleet Management
We have multiple tier-one carriers that are sure to provide your operation with the breadth of coverage you need.
We don’t believe in hidden charges. The numbers you see on our pricing page are what you get.
A Portal to Manage Your Data Usage
To help you manage your IoT data, we have features on our portals that allow you to see live data usage metrics. You can also protect overage charges with data guard settings.
Data Plans Tailored to Meet Your Present Needs and Future Changes
Our data plans are centered on fair pricing and optimum connectivity. We don’t lock you into a plan, and that allows you to adjust as your fleet tracking business grows and adapts.
Over time fewer farmers have managed to satisfy food for a growing population. Precision agriculture, which leverages sensors, mapping, and cellular connectivity, can make crop production and farming more productive. The advanced resources help farmers track and analyze data. With the information they glean from this data they are able to use their resources wisely, lower costs, and increase yields.
Agricultural sensors and paired technology can produce detailed maps of the land’s topography. It can also give climate forecasts. This information can be delivered in real-time to farmers who can use the data to make immediate adjustments on where to place crops, what type of crops to plant, and how to adjust their crop care. Farms located in rural areas and extensive land can still receive reliable connectivity through SIMON IoT.
The internet of things for agriculture leverages crop management devices, such as soil monitors. These devices are typically placed throughout fields to collect data specific to crop farming. The temperature, moisture, presence of pests, and more is detected by these devices and delivered for the farmer to analyze.
This technology monitors growth, points out anomalies, and detects infestations. All of this information is ultimately used to avoid and address harm to your crops.
Livestock can be given wearable IoT devices that monitor the animals’ vitals, location, and even reproductive patterns. Farmers won’t lose as many animals to death or illness by heeding the information from these IoT devices. You’re able to give more-informed care to sick animals. For instance, the sick animal can be removed from the herd to prevent diseases from spreading, illness can be diagnosed faster, and treatment distributed more efficiently.
Crop Storage Optimization
Once your crops have been harvested, IoT devices can help your crops last longer when they are stored. Sensors can help you monitor and adjust temperature and humidity levels.
Core Value of IoT in Agriculture
Optimized Yields and Livestock Health
IoT solutions are helping farmers close the supply-to-demand gap, by ensuring high yields, profitability, and protection of their environment. By successfully applying technology to their ecosystems, farmers are able increase crop productivity and livestock health. IoT makes this possible by tracking livestock vitals and locations, as well as multiple factors affecting crop health.
IoT technology used in farming allows for sustainability. The monitoring sensors and software applications made available to farmers can optimize expenditure of resources which saves you money and allows you to farm in a sustainable way.
SIMON IoT provides transparent pricing and a user-friendly data portal to make our IoT connectivity your best option for improving your fleet management process and moving your business forward.
