This work, developed within SWAMP project, presents a conceptual model to analyze the variables that affect the adoption of Precision Agriculture technologies for smart water management in the context of Agriculture 4.0. Through the literature review a conceptual model is proposed that, based on the Internet of Things, Theory of Planned Behavior and Agriculture 4.0, allows predicting and explaining the studied behavior. The model allows analyzing the impact of several actions that can be implemented by the different actors operating in the farm ecosystem. From this model it is possible to define a data model that relates the measures associated to each identified variable, with focus on operations planning and irrigation scheduling. The proposed models show that IoT and Industry 4.0 methods can bring great improvements in planning, control and optimization of agricultural operations and smart water management.
