It is essential to increase the productivity of agricultural and farming processes to improve yields and cost-effectiveness with innovated technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT). In particular, IoT can make agricultural and farming industry processes more efficient through automation by reducing human intervention. The aim of this research paper is to prescribe recently developed IoT applications in the agriculture and farming industries to provide an overview of sensor data collections, technologies like embedded electronics, and sub-verticals such as water management and crop management. This article highlights the potential of wireless sensors and IoT in agriculture, as well as the challenges expected to be faced when integrating this technology with the traditional farming practices. This paper includes the description of systems with the electronic circuitry of the systems, used network protocols and smart distant monitoring systems for PCs and Smartphones, etc. Later it includes some propositions and finally, the paper concludes with describing the future scopes of relevant technologies in smart farming.
