This Application Spotlight provides a qualitative and quantitative analysis of the IoT market related to Land Agriculture, including applications to support both crop and livestock farming and other types of agricultural production. It also includes the management of related assets and processes such as stock levels in silos, farm vehicles and machinery (including specialist fleet management), monitoring and management of produce, and waste produce, and energy demand time-shifting.

Example applications include livestock monitoring for cattle, sheep and pigs, precision agriculture using GPS and soil sensors, weather sensors monitoring wind and temperature, irrigation control and monitoring, milk tank cooling and wash sequence controlling, as well as more general IoT efficiency tools, such as monitoring fuel and fertiliser stock levels.

This Application Spotlight provides a definition, description, analysis of drivers and barrier, and high level forecasts for growth in connections, technology split and revenue opportunity.
