Wednesday, October 2, 2019. 2:00PM. Webinar: Applications for Internet of Things (IoT) for Improved Agricultural Operational Efficiency. Harbans Lal, USDA NRCS; José O. Payero, and Michael W. Marshall,Clemson University. Sponsored by USDA NRCS. More information here.
The IoT (Internet of Things) is the network of interconnected things/devices embedded with sensors, software (intelligent), network connectivity and necessary electronics. It enables one to collect and exchange data and to suggest and/or trigger an action plan based upon the built-in analytic. In combination with other technologies such as AI (Artificial Intelligence), analytic, machine learning, etc.), IoT presents unique opportunities for increasing farm productivity through enhanced human efficiency for meeting the challenges to feed the growing world population. During this webinar you will learn more about this emerging technology including its key components and a few example applications. You will also be exposed to some of the simple inexpensive IoT devices being developed and tested at the Clemson University as a part of the USDA NRCS Conservation Innovation Grant (CIG). These tools are helping reduce critical resource inputs (water & nutrients) without sacrificing yields and improving operational efficiency.
