Usecases / Agriculture


Precision Farming refers to the precise application of agricultural inputs with respect to soil, weather and crop need in order to improve productivity, Quality and profitability in agriculture.

  • It is a modern agriculture practive involving the use of technology in agriculture like remote sensing, GPS and Geographical Information System for improving productivity and profitability.
  • It enables farmers to use crop inputs more efficiently including pesticides, fertilizers, tillage and irrigation water.
  • More effective utilization of inputs will bring in more crop yield and quality without polluting the environment and will result in sustainable agriculture and sustainable development.
  • Hence precision farming is about doing the right thing, in the right place, in the right way, at the right time.

Advantages of Precision Farming:

  • It will enhance agriculture productivity and present soil degradation in cultivable land resulting in sustained agricultural development
  • It will reduce excessive chemical usage in crop production
  • Water resources will be utilized efficiently under the precision farming
  • GPS allows agricultural fields to be surveyed with ease. Moreover, the yield and soil characteristics can also mapped
  • Dissemination of information about agricultural practices to improve quality, quantity and reduced cost of production in agricultural crops
  • It will minimize the risk to the environment particularly with respect to the nitrate leaching and ground water contamination by means of the optimization of agro-chemical products
  • Non-uniform fields can be sub divided into smaller plots based on their unique requirements
  • It provided opportunities for better resource management and hence reduce wastage of resources
