Abstract

Agriculture is the main source of income in many countries in sub-Sahara Africa (SSA). In these countries, farmers get less yield because they depend on rainfall only. Integrating Internet of Things and Agriculture (smart agriculture) helps farmers to grow more crops in any season of the year. Also, it improves farmer’s living standard and raises the economy of these countries. Moreover, it reduces labor work or manual work which takes more time and more cost. This paper is evaluating the areas where smart farming can be applied in agriculture and brings the direct impact to farmers in SSA.
