Crop production industry includes growing crops, plants, vines, or trees and their seeds by establishments such as farms, orchards, groves, greenhouses and nurseries.
Crop Production industry is further classified as follows – Oilseed Farming, Grain Farming, Vegetable Farming, Nursery And Flowers, Fruit And Nut Farming and General Crop Farming.

Asia Pacific was the largest region in the crop production market in 2017, accounting for around 60% market share. This was mainly due to the large consumer population residing in the region, with increased purchasing power, and high demand.

Africa was the second largest region accounting for around 12% market share. Middle East was the smallest region accounting for around 4% market share.
The use of sensors technology enhances the crop production by enabling a real-time analysis and diagnosis of the crop. The sensor is an electronic component which detects events or changes in its environment and sends the information to other electronics.

Sensors can be used to detect the moisture of the soil and using this information, farmers can determine when to water and fertilize the crops. The use of sensors will result in improving the efficiency of resources, thereby significantly reducing costs. For instance, Soil IQ makes a 3-inch soil sensor mounted with a solar panel that sends data via a cellular network or a Wi-Fi. It feeds live information on soil condition and gives suggestions on planting and harvesting times.
