Abstract


Precision farming nowadays is an emerging area in agriculture which has a basic goal to maximize output (i.e. crop yield) while minimizing input (i.e. fertilizer, pesticide, herbicide etc) Precision farming can be defined as “application of a holistic management strategy that uses information technology to bring data from multiple source to make decision associated with agricultural production, marketing, finance and personnel”. The main objectives of precision farming are –to increase production efficiency, to improve to improve product quality, to reduce environmental degradation, to conserve energy and protection of soil & ground water. Key components of precision farming are: Information, Technology and Management. Precision farming technologies are classified in to five major groups: Computers, Global positioning system (GPS), Geographic information system (GIS), Sensors and Application Control. Precision farming promises higher yields lower input cost by streamlining agricultural management and thereby reducing the waste and labour. It also helps to minimize environmental pollution.
