  • About the Edition

    High yields and environmental control in crop farming call for precise adaptations to local growing conditions. Treating large fields in a uniform way by high capacity machinery cannot be regarded as a sustainable method for many situations. Because differences existing within single fields must be considered. The transition from former field work carried out manually or by small implements to present day high capacity machinery caused that the farmers lost the immediate and close contact with soils and crops. However, modern sensing and controlling technology can make up for this deficit. High tech methods that include proximal sensing and signals from satellites can provide for controls that allow adjusting farming operations to small fractions of one ha and sometimes even down to some m2, hence in a site-specific mode. This applies to operations for soil cultivation, sowing, fertilizing and plant protection. This book deals with concepts, applications and results, and has an interdisciplinary approach that pervades all chapters.

Precision Agriculture is an integrated crop management system. Precision agriculture (PA) (also known as “precision farming,” “site-specific crop management,” “prescription farming,” and “variable rate technology”) has been developing since the s, and refers to agricultural management systems carefully tailoring soil and crop management to fit the different conditions found in each field.

The material presented will enhance students’ knowledge of specific production : $ Agricultural Internet of Things and Decision Support for Precision Smart Farming.

With VRA, once the status of plants is known, the precision crop need-based actions can be taken properly in real time. For the second part (Section ), Collaborative Control Protocols for Robotics and CPS (CCP-CPS) are presented.

Agricultural Internet. Precision Agriculture in Crop Production Site-specific crop management (SSM) uses a variety of technologies to manage different parts of a field separately. Natural, inherent variability within fields means that mechanized farming could traditionally apply only crop treatments for “average” soil, nutrient, moisture, weed, and growth conditions.

Precision Agriculture in the 21st Century highlights both the uncertainties and the exciting possibilities of this emerging approach to farming.

This book will be important to anyone concerned about the future of agriculture: policymakers, regulators, scientists, farmers, educators, students, and suppliers to the agricultural industry.

Precision agriculture (PA), satellite farming or site specific crop management (SSCM) is a farming management concept based on observing, measuring and responding to inter and intra-field variability in goal of precision agriculture research is to define a decision support system (DSS) for whole farm management with the goal of optimizing returns on inputs while preserving resources.

tilization varies by region and crop, but experiences in Texas and other states have shown that, for granu-lar fertilizer applications on high yielding corn, costs can be reduced by $5 to 15 per acre.
