PRODUCTION AS TECHNOLOGY IMPROVES, the world is only growing more interconnected. Through innovations like smart devices and the Cloud, the Internet of Things (IoT) is helping businesses more effectively manage their operations and connect with their consumers.

The agriculture industry is already starting to make use of IoT technology, using it to build efficiencies into everyday operations. One major way that IoT is becoming integrated into the agriculture world is through sensors that can be placed in soil right alongside crops. These sensors can store and directly relay a wealth of real time data— temperature, moisture, and even nutrient levels in the soil—back to farm operators through the cloud. Tracking this data can help producers use fertilizer and water more efficiently, which translates to cost savings. 8
