Precision Agriculture

Precision agriculture is a method in which farmers optimize inputs such as water and fertilizer, to enhance productivity, quality, and yield. The term also involves minimizing pests and disease through the spatially targeted application of precise amounts of pesticides. 

Precision farming is a farming management concept based on observing and responding to intra-field variations. It relies on new technologies like satellite imagery, GPS, information technology, and other geospatial tools.
