FIware IoT Ready / benefits for agricultural applications

While it is very clear what are the drivers for Smart City related devices to go for the IoT Ready certification, I wanted to ask: How do you see IoT uptake within agricultural / farming applications? Do you think that the IoT device manufacturers in the farming field would benefit significantly from being interoperable?

It works exactly in the same way, IoT device manufacturers will benefit from 1) interoperability at the data context level and thus compliancy with more projects 2) business opportunities arising within the FIWARE community. Actually, interoperability is already a key topic for agrifood machinery.

of course

See this article published this year, http://www.sustainablecitiescollectiv...


"For instance, let’s consider a smart water solution that could be developed to optimize water supplies to farms. If a farm has a soil sensing system built on proprietary technologies it will not be able to interoperate, at a data level, with the smart water solution and as a result the farm will be isolated, and will have to spend additional time and money to connect to the water management solution. The main point here is that vertical, proprietary solutions might work initially but might have scalability problems in the end affecting both the end customer and the solution provider.”
