Engineering for Precision Agriculture

Fri, 2020-11-13 07:59 -- 2306257

With the world population predicted to increase by 2 billion by 2050, there is an increasing need to produce more food with the same land area. Precision agriculture, sometimes described as the third agricultural revolution, uses new technologies to optimise the use of inputs such as water, fertiliser and fuel in farming, leading to improved yields and reduced inputs and cost. Some of the technologies used include robotics, big data, satellite imagery, drones and internet of things devices.
