Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

IoT information in agriculture and its benefits were analyzed to determine a proposal in the management of information generated in the sowing and harvesting of cocoa. The problem is the lack of knowledge of farmers and support entities about the concepts and application of IoT in agriculture. The objective of this paper is to propose a feasibility analysis of an IoT infrastructure for efficient data processing in agriculture in the case of cocoa. The exploration and deductive method were applied for the analysis of the information of the referenced articles. It resulted in a Conceptual Model of IoT in agriculture, a four-layer Architecture, an Execution Algorithm and a Proposal for infrastructure feasibility. It was concluded that the proposal based on IoT is an efficient option for collecting, transporting, processing and delivering information in the process of sowing and harvesting cocoa; feasibility shows that the proposal is viable, simulation tests measured the architecture efficiency with a minimum value of 95.70%. A collective feasibility evaluation based on the LWPM operator shows very high feasibility according to the experts.
