Precision Farming: Key technologies & concepts (AI/PrecisionAgriculture - 2001-01 - CEMA)
Precision Farming is about managing variations in the field accurately to grow more food using fewer resources and reducing production costs. All aspects of the environment – soil, weather, vegetation, water – vary from place to place. And all these factors determine crop growth and farming success. The technologies used include: High precision positioning systems (like GPS, for navigation and spraying control with 2 cm accuracy); Automated steering systems; Geomapping (maps showing soil type, nutrient levels, etc); Remote sensing (data to evaluate soil and crop health – moisture, nutrients, compaction, crop diseases); Integrated electronic communications between components – tractor and farm office or dealer, spray can and sprayer); Variable rate technology (Adapting seed or fertiliser according to the exact variations in plant growth, or soil nutrients and type within cm).
