Global population is expected to grow by 70% by 2050, putting ever-increasing pressure on agriculture to feed the world. However, climate change and changing consumer needs continue to add to the burden of farmers to balance the various demands. Currently, it is common for farmers to manually monitor all factors on their farm including the condition of their livestock, crop, and soil conditions. There is also a lack of security infrastructures against natural disasters, theft, and accidents on farms.
Previously, automated monitoring and control systems on farmlands have been limited by the poor coverage of cellular networks in rural areas. However, that has all changed now thanks to LPWAN technologies like LoRaWAN. These next generation IoT solutions enable detection, monitoring and control over very long distances of a wide variety of key agricultural data before thought to be infeasible to collect. A wide network of gateways and data loggers collect data such as crop health, weather conditions, water quality, soil temperature, soil moisture, farm equipment position, livestock condition, irrigation condition and more. LoRaWAN technology’s long-range, low-power long range communication capabilities enable the use of low-cost sensors to send data from the farm to the Cloud where it can be stored and analyzed. Radacat’s system can be customized and integrated into any existing network infrastructure, making it scalable and easy to implement.
