Precision farming.

Precision farming has raised modern agriculture to a new level. It includes a range of systems designed to provide differentiated, targeted management of agricultural land and incorporate GPS information.

The aim of conventional precision farming is to identify differences in soil characteristics and yield capacity between areas within a field and to respond in line with requirements. The challenge is to achieve better nutrient distribution within a field and to apply the optimum level for a specific site. Only the precise amount required by the crop at that site is applied. This increases yields and saves on fertilisers and pesticides, while at the same time preventing nutrient accumulation and thus protecting the environment.
