The Princeton Vertical Farming Project (PVFP) researches what the most optimal growing conditions are for indoor farming and how to produce the best crop yield while using the fewest amount of resources (e.g., water, electricity).
Of all the new technologies appearing on the farm, "remote sensing" systems (devices that measure conditions from a distance, commonly an aircraft or satellite) are unique in their ability to deliver information on the existing conditions in the field.
The use of real-time data is beginning in agricultural sectors with high-value highly perishable crops such as fresh vegetables, berries and other fresh fruit. There is more communication between the field and the processor in those sectors
The IoT agricultural applications are making it possible for ranchers and farmers to collect meaningful data. Large landowners and small farmers must understand the potential of IoT market for agriculture by installing smart technologies to increase competitiveness
The biggest thing to get right is sales. And sales are driven by how the space in the farm is utilized. Of course, yield is important, but growers need to understand how crops are performing and how much space they occupy as well, because the two are interconnected.
Bryan Thompson for Harvest Public Media: Agriculture today is a high-tech business, but as that technology has developed, so has the temptation to take short cuts and to steal trade secrets that could unlock huge profits.
