About this book

The concept of precision agriculture may well be centuries old but its implementation in the twenty-first century, made possible by amazing technological developments, is key to the success of agriculture in the midst of a myriad of restraints unknown to farmers in the past. In such a scenario, research is essential so that rational, intelligent and systematic approaches may be taken in production agriculture to achieve the benefits that precision agriculture can bring. Much has already been published in this area but these proceedings for the 5th biennial conference demonstrate necessary on-going research.
