A daunting task, but if there’s one thing that farmers have proven throughout history, it is their capability to adapt and innovate. And now it seems innovation is needed more than ever!

Precision farming a vital tool

Precision farming is considered and has proven to be a vital tool to increase yields and efficiency. To apply the right amounts of inputs at the right place and at the right time. Lowering input costs and environmental impacts. A whole new way of farming, where exciting and state of the art technologies such as drones, GPS, big data, Artificial Intelligence and robotics place the farmer in an unmatched hi-tech environment.

Not surprisingly, major non-agricultural global players like Amazon, Bosch, Google, IBM, Microsoft and Tencent have started to focus on and invest in precision agriculture.
