Agriculture disease and pest management uses sensors to monitor for specific pests to understand their activity, location, and behavior patterns. It is done by connecting traps or sensors to report specific pest levels and automating data collection to take more accurate and timely countermeasures. Pest activity can be tracked in different areas of the farm or surrounding areas so that action can be taken before crops are severely affected. This use case also includes integrated pest management, a process to select pest control actions that will ensure favorable economic, ecological, and social consequences. Automating time-consuming aspects of pest management such as measuring indicators and responding to them based on pre-defined rules makes the process more accurate, timely, and efficient.
