Despite the increasing population (the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations estimates 70% more food will be needed in 2050 than was produced in 2006), issues related to food production have yet to be completely addressed. In recent years, Internet of Things technology has begun to be used to address different industrial and technical challenges to meet this growing need. These Agro-IoT tools boost productivity and minimize the pitfalls of traditional farming, which is the backbone of the world's economy. Aided by the IoT, continuous monitoring of fields provides useful and critical information to farmers, ushering in a new era in farming. The IoT can be used as a tool to combat climate change through greenhouse automation; monitor and manage water, soil and crops; increase productivity; control insecticides/pesticides; detect plant diseases; increase the rate of crop sales; cattle monitoring etc. Agricultural Informatics: Automation Using the IoT and Machine Learning focuses on all these topics, including a few case studies, and they give a clear indication as to why these techniques should now be widely adopted by the agriculture and farming industries.

This book is a compilation of contributed works on management of data in the age of artificial intelligence. The AI technologies have changed the way the businesses do manage themselves in modern times. It becomes much more important to manage the data a business owns when the same can be collated and used by the allied AI technologies for forming business decisions. This book highlights how AI and machine learning can help businesses categorise and manage their organizational data. The book introduces how small businesses can benefit from AI technologies for their data management with limited budgets. The book advocates for making AI processes to be core part of consumer experience and support management within the businesses. As a unique feature, this book also goes to make an awareness as to how human brain can use AI’s deep learning capabilities to make reflective decisions. The book also introduces as to how big data and big data analytics can help agriculture and farm management sector. It is hoped that the readership will find this book useful in the areas of big data management, machine learning and data decisions, AI technologies for small businesses, usage of AI in emerging sectors and those areas where data needs to managed in an environment of automation.

Agriculture plays a vital role in a country’s growth. Modern-day technologies drive every domain toward smart systems. The use of traditional agricultural procedures to satisfy modern-day requirements is a challenging task. Cloud IoT Systems for Smart Agricultural Engineering provides substantial coverage of various challenges of the agriculture domain through modern technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing, and many more. This book offers various state-of-the-art procedures to be deployed in a wide range of agricultural activities. The concepts are discussed with the necessary implementations and clear examples. Necessary illustrations are depicted in the chapters to ensure the effective delivery of the proposed concepts. It presents the rapid advancement of the technologies in the existing agricultural model by applying the cloud IoT techniques. A wide variety of novel architectural solutions are discussed in various chapters of this book. This book provides comprehensive coverage of the most essential topics, including: New approaches on urban and vertical farming Smart crop management for Indian farmers Smart livestock management Precision agriculture using geographical information systems Machine learning techniques combined with IoT for smart agriculture Effective use of drones in smart agriculture This book provides solutions for the diverse domain of problems in agricultural engineering. It can be used at the basic and intermediary levels for agricultural science and engineering graduate students, researchers, and practitioners.

The broad range of research topics reported in this abstract book is a valuable resource for researchers, advisors, teachers and professionals in agriculture. ICT in agriculture, the field of EFITAâ€™s interest, precision agriculture and precision livestock farming are becoming ever more relevant as the agricultural industry struggles to come to terms with various developments. These include issues of cooperation, Internet, standardisation, software architecture, robotics, environment, animal and human welfare, economics, traceability, farm management, vehicle guidance, crop management, animal disease and livestock management. Whilst some benefits have proved elusive, others contribute positively to todayâ€™s agriculture. Research continues to be necessary and needs to be reported and disseminated to a wide audience. Also note that the reviewed papers from the 4th European Conference on Precision Livestock Farming and the 7th ECPA conference are presented in companion publications.
