What is Precision Agriculture?

Precision agriculture uses information technologies, like Global Positioning Systems (GPS), Geographical Information Systems (GIS), and remote sensing to target inputs and management practices to variable field conditions. These technologies take into account unique soil/landscape characteristics and pest presence, resulting in higher profits and better environmental protection.

More agricultural producers are recognizing the need for site-specific techniques and demand for knowledgeable people in this area is increasing.

The Center's greatest contribution will be its legacy of practitioners, researchers and educators.
