Price challenges block agricultural sensor adoption

Despite sensors having many applications in agriculture, innovative pricing and service models will be key to the success of technology developers, says Lux Research. With farmers facing price variability and other uncertainties, few are able or willing to risk significant capital on sensing technologies, which can help make more efficient use of soil, water, pesticides and equipment. Developers need to target the crops best suited for their technologies and create attractive financing or leasing options, or adopt service models that resonate with the growers.
