THE ROLE OF PRECISION FARMING IN SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE
Precision agriculture consists of three components: capturing data in an accurate manner, interpreting and evaluating the data, make better decisions for crop production. The increase in the production of food using precision agriculture is a key priority without generating an increase in the exploitation of vital resources such as water and fertilizer. It is also essential to achieve these results without compromising the physical and chemical qualities of the soil: this is the only way to implement a sustainable food production model. In this presentation, we try to define the benefits that offer precision farming and present some projects developed in precision farming
- Weather station for precision agriculture and plant protection
- Precision dosing fertilizers, and soil protection.
- Control of aquaponic farming system.
- Internet of Things applied to agriculture
