Smart Connectivity, Connected Infrastructure, & the…

location systems, robots, and drones are unable to communicate, limiting their synergistic value to the farmer. Connected devices are useful in many key agricultural applications, such as: • Crop selection and planning

• Soil preparation • Soil monitoring • Seed selection

• Seed sowing • Fertilizer use • Irrigation control • Harvesting • Packaging and storing

REAPING THE BENEFITS OF SMARTER FARMING IoT technology helps farmers determine the optimal combination of water, energy, fertilizer, and other inputs. Real-time data allows farmers to detect problems, like plant diseases, as they develop. With this improved precision and control, yields can be significantly increased. By automating processes such as sowing, treating crops, and harvesting, farmers are less dependent on a fluctuating labor market. More precise weather forecasting and monitoring soil moisture help reduce water usage, which lowers costs and enhances sustainability. Overall, efficient land management helps minimize the impact on the environment through reduced energy consumption and gas emissions. M8 CONNECTORS: THE RIGHT CHOICE FOR SENSOR-BASED APPLICATIONS Compact and versatile, M8 connectors offer the most effective connectivity solution for smart farming applications that depend on sensor technology.
