The Internet of Things (IoT) is set to revolutionise farming and food production. It will help save both money and staff time, increase productivity and yield as well as reduce waste.

A free webinar aimed at agri-food businesses will explain the benefits of IoT technology and show how it can be introduced easily and cost-effectively.

The webinar from Cornwall College and Cornish technology businesses Glas Data and Ver Facil is being delivered as part of the Innovation in Higher Level Skills (IHLS) project.

Who is the webinar for?

Any agriculture or food production business that manually monitors or adjusts part of its operation for temperature, water or ventilation, for example.

What will the webinar cover?

The ‘Internet of Things’ uses sensors to provide data from all aspects of a farm or food production business. Sensors can monitor everything from water levels and weather to animal health and soil nutrients. 

Using practical examples of the Internet of Things in action, experts from Ver Facil, a leading Internet of Things installer, will explain the range of things sensors can be used to monitor. Ver Facil will also show how IoT networks can be set up to automatically transfer data independently, without the need for manual collection. The sensors installed by Ver Facil are low power and provide real-time data and wide-area monitoring. They can be used by farmers and food producers to automate processes, mitigate any issues that are picked up in real-time by the sensors and identify ways to increase productivity.

With the ability to automatically collect a range of data through IoT technology, the next step is how to access and use the information gathered. Glas Data has developed an agricultural dashboard – GlasCore – which will be demonstrated during the webinar.

Information from sensors can be delivered automatically to the GlasCore dashboard and displayed on one easy to understand screen on a mobile phone, tablet or computer. There is no need for users to manually input the data – it is all done for them. The dashboard can be set up to display the precise information and trends that are needed, and can automatically flag up issues where action needs to be taken.
