How much would it cost to develop an IoT based proof of concept (PoC) for Smart Farming System?

BI Intelligence has predicted that IoT device installations in the agricultural world will increase from 30 million in 2015 to 75 million in 2020.

IoT for farming, an intriguing concept indeed if the whole picture of current agricultural ecosystem is considered. Homosapiens of 21st century will find it hard to survive without internet, smartphones and all the innovations which have happened in recent years, albeit the primary necessities of human species to survive are air, food and water. A hell lot of factors are affecting farming industries and productivity of goods that are necessary for human living.

Worrying Signs for Farming Industry & the need of Smart Farming

Ever increasing global population and consumption needs, global climate changes resulting heat waves and cropland reductions are directly impacting the global environment and productivity of goods of survival. As a consequence, farming industry bears enormous losses, which amounts USD 310 in developing countries considering food waste.

This situation calls for a change and cutting edge technologies like Internet of Things (IoT), Machine Learning (ML) and cloud computing can certainly help in overcoming most of these problems with the concept of smart farming leveraging IoT app development.

Smart Farming- Stats and Facts

Connected farms, a result of IoT based farming solutions, help to enhance overall agricultural productivity, minimise operational costs, effective asset/ resource management and address issues such as healthy food demands and scarcity of goods due to deforestation.

  • 9.6 bn population is assumed by 2050 compared to 7.6 bn in 2018 resulting in growing demands (UN report)
  • $26.76 bn is the market value of Smart Farming predicted by 2020 (Google)
  • Food losses and waste amounts to roughly $680 billion in industrialized countries (FAO)

FAQs

The cost will depend on the number of sensors and price of sensors used to built the hardware along with the area to get into monitoring and usage. The development and installation cost per acre land would be in the region of USD3000-5000.

Based on Food Productivity you can recover in 3 years. But if we consider other factors such as labour cost saving, climate change help due to water usage optimisation and AI implementation, it can go to exponential.

We can do that certainly. We also have developed solutions on home automation and Smart water management. This solution will also cater to smart irrigation technique and automated fertiliser intake when needed. The whole system will is built in a manner in which users can have the notifications about the current status of the crops. From water to fertilisers.
We design and develop custom hardware with the help of our in-house IoT engineers. Our complete solution of hardware and software give access to the users for 5000 kms by connecting our solution to Lorawan.
This is to be decided based on region specific industry best practices. Ideally, we recommend 50% advance and 50% escrow to be released after satisfactory level services verified by customer.
Of course, we do offer a live demo for all our IoT solutions we have developed to all our clients. We insist our client to go for a live demo in order to know their clear understanding about the solutions we provide, hence we can do the custom changes as per their business requirements to deliver a robust and perfect solution.
Our engineers will visit the area beforehand and also will be at your place for the installation of Smart farming system. We train our clients on every aspect to make sure that proper functioning of the system is understood with all the features.
Yes, we do provide flexible hiring models consisting highly skilled and certified team of resources (web developers, Android app developers, iOS developers, IoT Programmers) which are well versed in mobile app development projects for diverse industries using latest and cutting edge technologies.
