Next generation 5G network can be 100 times faster than 4G, making communication between devices and servers much faster. 5G can also carry much more data than other networks.
This makes the technology ideal for transferring information from remote sensors and drones, key tools tested by farmers. 5G also helps automate agricultural processes.
Drinks using 5G help improve potato production in the Netherlands. And in Japan, 5G sensors are used to monitor the water temperature and salt concentration of oyster plants.
cows carry 5G-connected collars that send data to the app on everything from what they eat to how they sleep. Farmers can see the information immediately and pass it on to veterinarians or nutritionists.
"This gives rest to the queue that the cows are happy, healthy and behave normally, as well as early warning if they get sick, are pregnant or need to be controlled," project manager Duncan Forbes said.
