IoT and Smart Agriculture

Agriculture has been evolving with new technology such as the Internet of Things (IoT). For example, greenhouses are connected to each other, and their environments are controlled automatically and optimized for the best quality of agricultural products. In addition, the advanced cattle sheds are built based on the IoT technologies. These efforts enhance the quality and safety of agricultural products and mitigate information asymmetry between producers and consumers.

However, some technical and business issues need to be addressed in the agriculture domain to accomplish the higher level of the IoT-based productions and services for producers, distributers, retailers, and consumers. This workshop addresses the current issues of agriculture related to IoT, and finds the future directions of technical and business development of smart agriculture.
