How Silicon Valley could revolutionize Salinas Valley, America’s farming capital

Forbes examined “smart farming” in an article that explored Salinas Valley, the fresh food capital of America just south of Silicon Valley in California and home to some agricultural giants that account for $8 billion in business. These companies are using technical science innovations such as sensors, big data, mobility, the cloud, and drones that connect networks to grow IoT solutions from “$1.9 trillion in 2013 to $7.1 trillion in 2020,” according to the International Data Corporation sourced in the article. These innovations, experts say, will enhance “yield optimization, food safety and quality, distribution, water management, fertilizer management and connected vehicles to whole new methods of growing food.”
