Agriculture has been characterized by several revolutions that have increasingly brought riches and knowledge, refining techniques, highlighting good practices and identifying the specificities of different crops.
Agricultural production is the result of synergies between physical elements (soil, atmosphere, water) and biological (plants and parasites): such interactions are characterized by sudden changes that we must observe and analyse. In order to choose the best solutions, we need:
- tools that read the changes;
- more precise and punctual means for optimising work and resources consumption.
Due to climate change and variables that intervene in the system, maintaining optimal conditions is increasingly difficult and mistakes in crop management can create serious damage to the company’s economic sustainability. Control and prediction of infestations, fertilization and irrigation requirements (key elements of precision farming) allow to increase quality of products with great economic benefits for the farm.
Precision Farming aims to bring a significant increase in the quality of products with a significant reduction in the invested economic resources, while paying close attention to the environment.
