The detailed introduction:

Precision farming is the need of the time to address food security for the region, nation and world as a whole. Different sensors are the most critical and integral part of precision irrigation, nutrient-management and crop health monitoring.

In addition to precision-irrigation and nutrient-management, early disease detection is another critical area for farmers, since most farmers do not have deep know-how to effectively detect and manage them most efficiently, resulting more often either over-treatment or under-treatment or too late treatment.

Data driven decision making for improving quality and quantity of yield would most likely get best results in this multi-variable problem, where few of the variables are very hard to control if not impossible.
