SmartAg 4.0 is an adaptation of “Industry 4.0” or, the fourth revolution of manufacturing technology. Many argue that we are entering the fourth revolution in agriculture; 1st -- Mechanization; 2nd -- Green Revolution; 3rd -- Genetically Modified Organisms; and the 4th -- Internet of Things. Today, we are witnessing the connection of agriculture to the internet. The Internet of Things is reshaping the food systems on a global scale.

Smart and connected farming is a capital-intensive and hi-tech system of growing food in a sustainable way. It is the application of modern ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) into agriculture. In IoT-based smart farming, a system is built for monitoring the crop field with the help of sensors (light, humidity, temperature, soil moisture, etc.) or automating the irrigation system. The farmers can monitor the field conditions from anywhere. IoT-based smart farming is highly efficient when compared with the conventional approach.
