Too Long; Didn't Read

In America the average age for farmers is increasing and we are seeing lower numbers of small farming communities as people move to urban centers. In addition to the aging farmer problem, our antiquated agricultural practices are contributing to environmental destruction. What happens when our farmers age out, their communities disappear along with their legacy, and systems that are too big to maintain? We have two options, continue with our current system with younger farmers or create a new system with younger farmers. Either way we need the next generation to pick up the torch so let us redesign the way that agriculture is managed, making it more sustainable and productive in the process using next generation technology. Using Internet of Things (IoT) we can reimagine farms that are automated to reduce environmental impact.
