Precision Agriculture Market Overview
Precision agriculture is also known as satellite agriculture, precision ag or precision farming, as-needed farming, and site-specific crop management. The site-specific crop management is a farming management theory based on measuring, responding, and observing to plant and intra-field variability in the crop.
Precision agriculture is used for transforming agricultural extension in emerging countries using the latest available technologies and research methods. The goal of precision agriculture is to ensure sustainability, protection, and profitability of the environment.
Precision agriculture relies upon specific equipment, IT services, and software. Predictive analytics software uses the data to help with guidance about soil management, optimal planting times, a crop rotation, and harvesting times.
Precision Agriculture Market: Drivers
Precision agriculture has a variety of technology opportunities that improves farming operation, from drones to climate monitoring systems.
Rapid use of IoT in agriculture sector is providing to the growth of the precision farming market. These technologies can be the Internet of Things, mobile phones, artificial intelligence, and the use of data by farmers.
The adoption of various technologies in precision agriculture are electromagnetic, photo electricity, remote sensing data, ultrasounds, and conductivity are used to structure, texture measures temperature, etc. Sensor technology use has been widely reported to provide information on water status/plant fertility and soil properties.
Precision agriculture technologies will generally require the use of software to carry out various tasks such as information layers mapping, display-controller interfacing, farm accounting of inputs per field, pre and post-processing data analysis and interpretation, farm accounting of inputs per area, and many others software.
The factors driving precision agriculture technology is the increasing use of smartphones, the rising application of technology, and the growing use of cloud-based technology to minimize the human efforts and losses. The rising demand to boost food production in government initiatives and available agricultural land to increase the usage of new technologies in agriculture are driving market growth.
