iFarming’s app uses IoT data to forecast farmers’ water needs and help them manage water usage
A smart app is to help farmers make sure their crops get the water they need. The app uses IoT data to predict water usage and allows farmers to control water levels in real-time.
The app aims to help farmers and local officials address drought conditions. It collects a huge volume of data from IoT sensors and uses the information to predict weather patterns.
Based on the app’s forecasts, farmers can then better manage their water usage.
This increased information allows farmers to improve the techniques they use on their land and avoid overwatering. The app also helps regional authorities find the best crops for the local climate.
The app has helped farmers reduce water usage by 40 per cent and lower irrigation costs by 25 per cent.
