Use of NBIoT in agriculture can enhance the performance in many aspects. Resource management in agriculture is one of the key aspects. Resources which are used to increase the harvest are underutilized because of the non-availability of precise monitoring facilities. NB-IoT can help in the optimal utilization of resources. It can accurately sense the level of usage of resources and enhance the utilization efficiency. NBIoT associated with variety of sensors for sensing water, fertilizer concentration, humidity levels can help in monitoring applications and provide great degree of precision. With NBIoT, remote controlling of the resources is possible. Use of NBIoT for agriculture reduces the energy consumption levels and overall cost involved which is ideal for farmers. Even the harvest can be increased by efficiently distributing the nutrition to the plants with NBIoT-based precise techniques.
