Precision Farming Overview

Wayne F. Smith


Precision Farming is an improved management system for production agriculture.

This statement comes as a surprise to many people who think of precision farming as synonymous with satellites, microprocessors, and intelligent sensors. Technology is important to precision farming but that is not what precision farming is really about. Precision Farming is about improving the productivity and efficiency of the farming enterprise through better information management.
