About this book

Modern agricultural practice, with its overwhelming emphasis on high productivity, has had adverse effects on the environment. New forms of sustainable management are being developed which consider agricultural production systems to be part of a much broader ecological system in which soil and water quality and health aspects are important. This type of agricultural management system is called Precision Agriculture. This book investigates these new agricultural systems and looks at how they can improve farm productivity against the enhancements for the environment.
