The Future of Food Production Using Precision Agriculture
Precision agriculture is the collection of real time data that affects agricultural production, it ranges from soil fertility to market availability. The data collected can be analyzed and used to help farmers make smart decisions that may eventually lead to optimized planting and possibly increased harvest. Some of the take away points would be:
- Do governments have strong IT infrastructure to monitor the data?
- Should farmers used technology based models to farm? Pros and cons
- How do small holder farmers in Africa adopt to precision agriculture?
