Precision Farming

Precision farming is a farming management concept based on observing, measuring and responding to inter and intra-field variability in crops.

Precision Farming increases overall yield and improves consistent net crop margins. This is done through targeting ear density number at harvest, seed rate control within the field and reducing variations within the field over the growing season in order to lift the yield total.

Precision agriculture aims to optimize field-level management with regard to;

Precision farming also provides farmers with the opportunity to;
