Abstract

The agricultural industry's advancement by the use of technologies was the correct course of action during the industrial revolution. Optimisation by the application of technologies in the context of improved yield (both in terms of output and quantity) and more effective usage of available capital. The agricultural sector, especially rice farming, provides the majority of farmers in Thailand, Vietnam, and Cambodia with their primary source of income. These three countries have an abundance of natural resources, including fertile rice-growing areas. The Internet of Things (IoT) is used in the Agricultural Internet to link artifacts in our environment to the internet through smartphones or other mobile devices. This complements and advances existing modern agricultural practices, such as irrigation, land management, fertilizer and pesticide application, crop variety production, post-harvest processing, and marketing.
