What is Precision Agriculture?
Precision agriculture is the method to use the technology in farming for increase efficiency, crop productivity and manage cost. It is also knows as precision ag or precision farming. The aim of precision agriculture is to provide more accurate solution on the problem.
A key component of precision agriculture is the use of information technology and wide array of item such as GPS-base soil sampling, variable rate technology, autonomous vehicles, GPS guidance,sensors, control system, automate hardware, sensors, telematics, robotics, drones and software.
Precision agriculture help the farmers for:
Precision agriculture introduce with GPS guidance for tractor in 1990s. John Deere was inventor of that technology, using GPS location data from satellights for control tractor automatically, so that overcome the steering errors by drivers. The outcome of this technology in less wasted speed, time and fuel.
