2019 Global IoT Summit (GIoTS)
In recent years, agriculture has become increasingly data-driven and data-enabled due to the use of different technologies such as greenhouse and aquaculture technologies. With the development of agriculture, new technology is required, and the focus is facing towards the smartest technological investment. The increasing demand for the quality and the quantity in the food sector raised the need to intensify and industrialize the agriculture sector. The current work provides empirical measurement results from an Internet of Things (IoT) platform based on remote telemetry applications for agriculture. This paper aims to demonstrate how the processing of Big Data and the concept of decentralized cloud operation can answer the demands of IoT applications in agriculture and how smart farming will help farmers operate more efficiently and more secured. The architecture is based on ADCON Remote Telemetry Units (RTUs), Software as a Service (SaaS), a Platform as a Service (PaaS) represented by Grafana and influxDB database.

IoT is a fast evolving concept. In IoT the message need to be delivered instantly between neighboring nodes in IoT enabled network and for this to happen the nodes need to be in overlapping transmission range of each other. Literature Survey reveals that not much work has been done in the direction of understanding the concept of IoT and exploring it's applications. In our proposed research work, effort has been made to explore the new and innovative application of IoT along with a detailed systematic literature survey.

Nitrogen from agricultural production is a major cause of pollution in the Mississippi River Basin and contributes to large dead zones in the Gulf of Mexico. Illinois and other Midwestern states have set goals to reduce nitrogen load through strategies that include different land management practices. A new study from University of Illinois researchers, published in Journal of Environmental Management, uses computer modeling to estimate how those practices may be affected by potential changes in the climate, such as increased rainfall.

Mr. Wang Xiaobing, the Director-General of Information Centre at the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs of the People’s Republic of China (MARA) led a delegation to FAO. The team presented China’s approaches and experiences in digital agriculture and e-commerce transformation for its rural communities at the 6th Digital Innovation Dialogue, held in FAO Headquarters.In recent years, China has made great efforts to promote the integration of the internet, big data, artificial intelligence with the development of agriculture and rural areas, vigorously develop digital agriculture, accelerate the development of e-commerce, and actively promote informatization in rural areas. In order to promote digital agriculture and e-commerce to rural farmers, China’s approach is promoting the adoption of e-agriculture and e-village. “To achieve this, we implemented ‘Broadband Village’ project which saw the improvement of the internet speed and reduce the tariffs for farmers to encourage farmers to consume and utilize more internet-based solutions”, remarked Mr. Wang.
