Summary

Tomatoes are an important crop for their economic value and nutritional benefits. Optimizing yields for tomato crops requires careful attention to how and when to harvest both in the context of time-to-market and end use. The Internet of Things (IOT), when using distributed and networked sensors, has shown tremendous potential to support precision agriculture, providing a finer resolution, more detailed picture of crops that was not previously possible using conventional crop monitoring techniques. This book marries the potential of the Internet of Sensors to the needs of tomato farming, in ways that are economically fruitful, technologically robust, and environmentally sustainable.
