5G Smart Agricultural Sector : Deployment & Applications

5G is the 5th generation of communications systems, a major expansion of today’s 4G LTE networks. 5G has been designed to accommodate the extremely broad increase in data and mobility in today’s digital world, the Internet of Things with billions of connected devices, and tomorrow’s technologies.

By 2050 The World Population Will Explode To 9.5 Billion. We’ll Need a 70% Increase in Food Production. 

5G and edge computing can empower rapid data-to-cloud transmissions for real-time analytics and machine-to- machine communications that optimize and automate precision farming.


Deploy, Manage & Monitoring


• Drill, Seed, Spray, or till with autonomous tractors.

• Achieve site - specific crop application with variable rate technology.

• Maximum use of water with smart irrigation 


• Obtain vast field information with agriculture drones

• Adjust for climate condition with a smart greenhouse

• Analyze production, risk, and finances with farm management system

Deploy, Manage & Monitoring with 5G smart Agriculture


• Promotes livestock wealfare with GPS and biomedical data

• Avoid soil degradation with monitoring system

• Track total harvest quantities with yield monitoring

5G Smart Agriculture Applications

5G Smart Agriculture Applications Are:

5G on Farm Machinery

For precision agriculture to really take off requires 5G-connected farm machinery. A massive increase in compute power and data collection are the driving forces behind the rise in artificial intelligence (AI) 5G on farm machinery and sensors will increase massively the amount of data available.

5G Smart Agriculture Applications

Precision Agriculture

Also called „smart farming‟, precision agriculture is all about applying precise treatments to crops, so instead of treating an entire field the same, farmers can give each row exactly what it needs. It‟s all about reducing inputs, from water and food to fertiliser and herbicides.

Drone Spraying

Autonomous drone sprayers are coming; equipped with a weed scanner and crop sprayer, they scan crops using AI to identify weeds - precision agriculture defined - then apply pesticide only where needed. After 30 minutes they return to a field boundary station, refill their tank and top-up their battery.

Livestock Tracking

5G will enable connectivity and geolocation services, which could reduce the cost and increase the performance of livestock monitoring solutions that currently depend on proprietary radio solutions,” says Jordan. “However, this will depend on 5G coverage being available and early deployments are focused on urban centres.are focused on urban centres.

Weed and Crop Monitoring

Now that drone cameras can detect differences between crops and weeds, farmers can spray appropriate areas rather than overuse pesticide. John Deere agricultural firm Blue River now uses 5G along with high-resolution cameras that generate 20 images per second. The technology includes AI software that identifies weeds, so it helps farmers apply weed killer exactly where it’s needed instead of blanketing a field with chemicals


In the next decade, 5G will become more common in agriculture, and particularly for agriculture businesses with large output. The use of IoT powered sensors and 5G together will provide affordable and environmentally conscious solutions for farmers to run more efficient farming operations. This combination will save energy, which will reduce costs and improve the quality of produce. Beside many usage of 5G network, it has lots of adverse effects.
