Precision Agriculture. Summary

Rösch, Christine; Dusseldorp, Marc ORCID iD icon; Meyer, Rolf


Precision agriculture (PA) is an innovative information-guided management concept of crop production that builds on various new or further developed technologies - in particular satellite-based positioning and sensor-based recording systems. Small-scale varying soil conditions and plant populations existing within a field can be recorded with the help of PA technology. On the basis of this information, special systems of information evaluation as well as suitable equipment technology can be used to design plant cultivation measures more spatially and quantitatively precise than before.
This volume analyses the economic and ecological potential of land management with PA and shows possible courses of action for research and development, for sustainability and impact analyses as well as for the diffusion of PA.
