What is precision agriculture?

Precision agriculture is a cutting-edge field that combines technology, data analysis, and scientific knowledge to maximize crop yields and improve farming practices. With the global population on the rise and the demand for food increasing, precision agriculture has become increasingly important to ensure sustainable agricultural practices and meet the growing demand for food. Precision agriculture is a systematic approach to farming that uses advanced technologies to gather information about soil conditions, crop yields, and environmental factors. By gathering precise data, farmers can make informed decisions regarding the application of fertilizers, pesticides, and water, resulting in improved efficiency, reduced waste, and increased profitability.
