In a technology-driven era, traditional farming methods are now giving way to the use of ICT tools for more effective agricultural management. These tools enable farmers to monitor the conditions and variables in crop and land cultivation, thereby allowing them to have some control over crop yield and quality.
Against this background, this special issue aims to share the latest knowledge on how ICT is transforming the crop and agriculture industry and inspire a sustainable and smart future of farming.
