Precision agriculture

Farm managers use analytics, information and surveillance technology to monitor crops and soils so crops provide optimum yields efficiently. The goal of Precision agriculture is to ensure profitability, sustainability and protection of the environment.

Precision agriculture provides farmers access to real-time data about the conditions of the crops, soil and ambient air, along with other relevant information such as local weather predictions, labor costs and equipment availability. Sensors in fields can measure the moisture content and temperature of the soil and surrounding air. Satellites and robotic drones provide farmers with real-time images of individual plants. Information from those images can be processed and integrated with sensor and other data to yield guidance for immediate and future decisions, such as precisely what fields to water and when or where to plant a particular crop. Predictive analytics software uses the data to provide farmers with guidance about crop rotation, optimal planting times, harvesting times and soil management.
