By 2050, Agriculture production will need to increase by 70% of current production levels to meet the growing population demands


Connectivity and Network coverage are the biggest hurdles towards transformation of farming and agriculture practices.

Why its important

Without adequate coverage, modern methods of process improvement and automation cannot be implemented. Valuable data and insights cannot be obtained
