Recently, Samsung Electronics had showcased its solutions that can possibly enable a variety of 5G-powered business models and scenarios for smart agriculture, home broadband services and smart cities in India. According to South Korean major, smart agriculture will be a key focus area when 5G services are rolled out in India.
The 5G use cases for smart agriculture will revolve around sensors and devices on the farm that can provide information on soil moisture, nutrients, spoilage and other aspects of farming. In collaboration with the Department of Telecommunications (DoT), Samsung announced last week that it will commence the first large-scale 5G trials in India in the first quarter of next year.
Samsung has expressed that the Indian government has shown keen interest in 5G use cases around agriculture, considering that farming is one of the mainstays of the Indian economy.
