AbstractAgricultural growth reduces poverty extreme, the intensity of poverty and income inequality for society in general. On the contrary, the lack of dynamism in agricultural growth and absence of improvements in the productivity of land and work are a threat to consideration in terms of rural poverty. Through the IoT, sensors can be installed where desired - in soil, water or vehicles - to collect data on goals related to inputs, such as soil moisture and crop health. The information collected is stored on a server or wireless cloud system, and farmers can easily access it through tablets and mobile phones with an Internet connection. Depending on the context, farmers can choose to manually control connected devices or fully automate processes for whatever action is necessary.IoT is vital in increasing production, since it allows to increase the cultivated area, improving cultivation techniques, lower costs and dignify human work, to carry out such technology the small farmer needs economic energy sources, practical, easy maintenance and operation, and whose working capacity and costs are appropriate to the size of the property. Being the purpose of this paper to review the application of the internet of things to Mexican agriculture to analyze your current situation and your perspectives to increase agricultural productivity and reduce the Mexican rural poverty. In Mexico, the application of the internet to agriculture is practically minimal.It does not have the dynamism that it is taking in other countries, it is necessary to promote it to increase the productivity of small farmers.
