The introduction of Internet of Things (IoT) technology in agriculture has changed traditional farming practices and provided a data-based and efficient approach to crop management. IoT in agriculture involves interconnected devices embedded with sensors, software, and connectivity capabilities that collect and exchange data. Advanced analytics techniques are used to analyses this data, providing valuable insights for farmers to enable precision farming practices, resource optimization, disease detection, improved decision-making, and enhance productivity while reducing waste. Farmers can make well-informed decisions for improved crop management thanks to data-driven insights. This paper focuses on the challenges faced by small-scale farmers in implementing Internet of things solutions in agriculture.
