    This book brings new smart farming methodologies to the forefront, sparked by pervasive applications with automated farming technology. New indigenous expertise on smart agricultural technologies is presented along with conceptual prototypes showing how the Internet of Things, cloud computing, machine learning, deep learning, precision farming, crop management systems, etc., will be used in large-scale production in the future. The necessity of available welfare systems for farmers’ well-being is also discussed in the book. It draws the conclusion that there is a greater need and demand today for smart farming methodologies driven by technology than ever before.
