From measuring environmental conditions that influence crop production to tracking livestock health indicators, Internet of Things (IoT) technology for agriculture enables efficiencies which reduce environmental impact, maximize yield and minimize expenses. Smart agriculture use cases based on Semtech's LoRa® devices and the LoRaWAN® protocol have demonstrated significant improvements, such as a 50% water reduction for commercial farms. LoRa Technology’s long-range, low-power wireless qualities enable the use of low cost sensors to send data from the farm to the Cloud where it can be analyzed to improve operations.
