The agriculture sector feeds around 7.5 billion people that require proper lands and fresh water. However' with the increasing pollution' the environment is changing and resulting in damage of crops and is leading to the change in the life cycle of plants and animals. Thus' one way to address this issue of agricultural production is to use sensing technology to make intelligent farms. Advanced farming is about utilisation of right technology to improve the cultivation regardless of using chemicals. The use of advanced farming will improve monitoring of crop health and animal' quality of the filed' improvement in soil (moisture and fertility)' and yield production. It also helps in reducing wastage on the field and improves the efficiency of land and the crop.
The usage of technologies improves decision making process in agriculture. Escalating the demand of the food supply chain has mandated the utilisation of the agriculture resources. With this' the regulatory bodies have also started developing rural areas by setting up new infrastructure to ensure the benefits of the development in these areas.

Since last few years' with the growing food requirement and climate change concerns' farmers across the globe have started utilizing the technology- and environment-friendly farming practices. Although this transition is mostly in the developed economies' it is expected that in the coming years' even the underdeveloped markets will adopt it.
The advanced farming technologies such as variable rate technology (VRT) and high precision positioning systems (HPS) help the farmers to take informed decisions such as when' how and where to harvest the crop and increase the yield. Most of these systems are interlinked with the farming management systems (FMS). These technologies also help the farmers to track and monitor the animal health. Since past two to three years' the cloud based FMS has started penetrating into the advanced farming market. With the help of these systems' the farmer is able to track and monitor the farm activities from remote locations at any time from his desktop or from a mobile device. For example' if there is some variation in the animal health' the farmer will receive an alert message. These cloud based systems at present are popular in North America' Western Europe' and Australia.
There are various factors driving the advanced farming market such as government and United Nation's (UN) support' growing food requirement' and need for the water management systems. But' one of the key factors impacting the growth of the market is the high initial investments. Farmers are bit reluctant in adopting these technologies specifically in underdeveloped countries such as in Africa.
