TDI is bringing IoT in Indian agriculture, with this technology the drones will be able to predict correctly, the fertility of the farmland, it will also address the weeding problem faced by the farmers and also the yield per plant, it said.
TDI develops sensors, which can be placed in the glasshouses, and from where real-time information around temperature, water capacity, quality of soil will be generated, informed the statement. In case of a problem, the sensor will indicate the controlling center, helping to take immediate action, saving the crops.
