This review paper examines the potential of Next-Generation Agriculture, which is based on the use of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies to enable sustainable and efficient farming practices. IoT sensors and devices have the potential to revolutionize agriculture by enabling farmers to monitor and manage their crops and livestock with greater precision, efficiency, and sustainability. The paper discusses the key benefits and challenges of IoT-based agriculture, such as improved resource management, increased yields, and reduced environmental impact. It also explores the various applications of IoT in agriculture, including precision farming, smart irrigation, livestock management, and supply chain management. The review paper concludes that Next-Gen Agriculture has the potential to revolutionize the agriculture industry by enabling farmers to achieve sustainability goals, improve yields, and reduce costs, while also addressing key environmental concerns. However, several challenges such as data security, privacy, and infrastructure limitations need to be addressed to realize the full potential of IoT-based sustainable agriculture.

Important Announcements

All the authors, conference coordinators, conveners, and guest editors kindly check their articles' originality before submitting them to IJCERT. If any material is found to be duplicate submission or sent to other journals when the content is in the process with IJCERT, fabricated data, cut and paste (plagiarized), at any stage of processing of material, IJCERT is bound to take the following actions.
1. Rejection of the article.
2. The author will be blocked for future communication with IJCERT if duplicate articles are submitted.
3. A letter regarding this will be posted to the Principal/Director of the Institution where the study was conducted.
4. A List of blacklisted authors will be shared among the Chief Editors of other prestigious Journals
We have been screening articles for plagiarism with a world-renowned tool: Turnitin However, it is only rejected if found plagiarized. This more stern action is being taken because of the illegal behavior of a handful of authors who have been involved in ethical misconduct. The Screening and making a decision on such articles costs colossal time and resources for the journal. It directly delays the process of genuine materials.
