In the United States, there are approximately 2.06 million farms currently in operation.1 This is a drastic contrast to the 6.8 million farms in operation 80 years ago. Interestingly, the total farm output has more than doubled between 1948 and 2015, mostly due to technological developments driving change.
In today’s ever-connected world, with 5G networks expected to roll out nationwide by 2020, the Internet of Things (IoT) is already having a profound effect on many industries that aren’t necessarily thought of as “techie.” IoT is already a driving force behind predictive and real-time access to agricultural insights, enabling “Smart Farming”—including intelligent assistance in implementation, maintenance and use of the technology—and “Precision Agriculture,” defined as everything that makes the practice of farming more accurate and controlled when it comes to the growing of crops and raising livestock.
