Improve farming by leveraging the latest telematics, UCaaS & IoT solutions

Farming is a big deal; it feeds the planet, provides food and livelihoods for millions, and contributes significantly to the global economy. As technology improves, farmers worldwide realise that digital technologies can play a major role in helping farmers yield larger harvests through smart technologies and data-driven decisions.

Enhancing agriculture business communications for sustainable growth. In 2020, there were approximately 208,000 agricultural holdings in the UK, with a total area of 17.2 million hectares, contributing more than £10 billion to the UK economy, according to the UK Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA). The global agriculture sector is responsible for producing enough food to feed the world’s population, projected to reach 9.7 billion by 2050. Around 90% of the world’s food is produced by smallholder farmers, who often face challenges such as poverty, limited access to resources, and the impacts of climate change.

In the coming decades, the importance of the farming industry is set to increase significantly. With the global population projected to exceed 9 billion by 2050, the UN warns of potential food shortages if innovations are not developed. To meet the demands of this growing population, agricultural production must increase by more than 50%.

Farming industry Challenges

Labour Shortage:

UK agriculture grapples with a labour crisis stemming from Brexit, the COVID-19 aftermath, and career shortages with young people’s lack of interest in farming. This shortage cripples crop harvesting and livestock care, driving up costs and diminishing outputs. While technological solutions offer respite to some, many farmers face uncertain futures. The government’s seasonal workers scheme is a step forward, but comprehensive measures are crucial to safeguard the industry’s future.

Funding Issues:

UK agricultural businesses are experiencing inflation of more than 25%, with significant price increases in fertilisers, gas, and fuel – some up to 200%. These cost pressures, alongside inflation and Brexit, are impacting the supply costs of feed, electricity, and seeds, among other things. The war in Ukraine also adds to these challenges in the UK agriculture sector. Airacom is helping to play a crucial role in helping farmers overcome these challenges by providing innovative technologies and solutions that enhance productivity, efficiency, and connectivity.

Price Volatility:

Agricultural price volatility can lead to unstable income, affecting food prices and hindering investments. Risk management, like diversification and market analysis, can help mitigate the impact. Farmers can diversify their crops and livestock, process value-added products, and sell them directly to consumers to reduce reliance on commodity markets. Such strategies offer opportunities for innovation and growth in the agricultural industry, leading farmers to explore alternative organic or niche markets.


IoT sensors automatically collect environmental and machine metrics, providing farmers with real-time data. This enables them to make more informed decisions and improve their work processes. IoT supports sustainable food production by integrating connected devices and innovative technologies into agriculture. Smart farming reduces the need for manual labour while improving productivity. Farmers can gain greater control, resulting in more predictable and efficient work processes.
