What is Precision Agriculture?
Precision agriculture, also known as site-specific crop management (SSCM), refers to an approach of farm management that enables farmers to produce more food in a cost-effective manner. It comprises various technologies, such as global positioning system (GPS), geographical information system (GIS), remote sensing (RS), and variable rate technology (VRT). It relies on specialized equipment, software, and information technology (IT) services to provide real-time data about the condition of the soil, ambient air and crops, labor costs, availability of equipment, and local weather predictions. It allows farmers to know about precise planting times, crop rotation, and harvesting times. It assists in decreasing the overall usage of water, pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers. Besides this, it aids in improving the profitability, productivity, quality, and sustainability of the crops. As it reduces production costs and labor inputs, the demand for precision agriculture is rising across the globe.
