The experience of smart farming can be improved using IoT-based applications. Still, the performance of IoT networks may be degraded due to different factors, i.e., the coverage area of the farm/location (surface or underwater)/environmental conditions etc. Network operations over heterogeneous environments may cause excessive resource consumption and thus may reduce the IoT sensor’s lifespan. To optimise energy consumption, in this paper, an energy-efficient method will be introduced for smart farming, and its performance will be analysed using different parameters (i.e., Throughput/energy consumption/residual energy etc.) using two different IoT standards (Long Range Low powered technology (LoRa)/SigFox).
