And the second with the implementation of intelligent sensors that efficiently monitor the activities and information going into the system, in this case any agricultural company using this tool.

In addition to the above, drones and robots, cloud computing and big data are characteristic instruments of this strategy network.

According to a report prepared and published by the International University of Valencia (VIU), the benefits of smart farming are: Increase in production and production rates, save water, increase the quality and quantity of products, significantly reduce costs, early detection of pests and minimize environmental pollution. And their areas of application are: Agricultural vehicle logistics, irrigation and cultivation management of agricultural areas, monitoring of livestock farming, management of indoor cultivation, fish farming, monitoring of plants in forests, mountains and jungles as well as the exploitation of wood resources in these areas (forestry) and in monitoring the storage of water and fuels.

Smart farming in meat and milk production

Alejandro Palladino and his partner Federico Hidalgo led smart farming strategies to start their own business of the same name. Smart Farming is a company dedicated to providing consulting services in the beef and dairy sector.

They are dedicated to collecting data from the spaces devoted to this area of ​​ranching to help them improve both profitability and profitability.

Your work is done via smart dashboards, which are connected to sensors that generate data, apart from the information that the company they work with can independently provide. All of this in order to be able to carry out studies and analyzes with which a work plan adapted to the institution can be drawn up later.
