Nanalyze Covers Finistere Market Map and CropX

While the Internet oThings (IoT) continues to transform practically every aspect of our existence, the agriculture sector is only now starting to really benefit from technologies like sensors. Farmers are typically old-school, and like clinging to age-old practices and rudimentary machinery, resulting in anxious guesstimates of crop yields each season as opposed to corporate farming operations that use precision agriculture to predict yields with a high degree of accuracy.
