The IoT empowers farmers to optimise the quality, sustainability and efficiency of their operations. So they can gain greater insight into the health of their crops. It enables them to monitor the health of their livestock and ascertain whether driverless farm vehicles can work the land.
Sensors collect data on weather, soil moisture and soil quality from the field.
The data is transmitted via LoraWAN, LTE M or M2M from KPN.
The data is then linked to the farm management systems via a data plug.
The data is, if desired, converted into information in the form of applications.
As a sensor company you want a trouble-free wireless connection in the field. With KPN’s IoT connectivity, you can be sure your sensors will always have a good connection, also internationally. What’s more, your sensors are easy to activate using our IoT app. Want to find out more?Contact us

KPN has started a collaboration with IoF2020 to bring Smart Farming to the attention of the people in the Netherlands. In this four-part series ‘sowing, growing, harvesting and storage’, farmer Jacob talks about his experiences with Smart Farming.
In part 1 'sowing', farmer Jacob shows how he determines how and where he paws potatoes on the basis of a soil scan.
In part 2 'growth', farmer Jacob shows how he uses soil sensors to measure the humidity in the ground and to determine the amount of watering.
In part 3 'harvest' you can see how farmer Jacob is harvesting his potatoes. The information of all fields corresponds to the location of the potatoes.
In part 4 “selling the harvest” Farmer Jacob shows how he uses the collected data of his potato harvest, to sell his harvest. Farm Frites, a manufacturer that produces fries, also uses this data to smoothen the production proces.
Suppliers in the agricultural sector take major strides in digitally transforming their agribusinesses.
