After mechanization, the introduction of mineral fertilizer and the industrialization of production processes, connectivity and data management are now set to unleash the next revolution in the history of farming, smart farming. Precision agriculture has been an evolving reality for some time, but It has now reached a point where it is not only possible to collect vast quantities of data, but also to control different pieces of equipment or monitor individual animals, the Internet of Things. A growing number of farmers are starting to adopt digital technology and data-driven innovations.
