ISPA and Precision Agriculture around the World
As a “management strategy that uses information technology to bring data from multiple sources to bear on decisions associated with crop production”, precision agriculture has a tremendous potential to change the face of agriculture for the best all around the world. The International Society for Precision Agriculture is well positioned to federate the scientific expertise available on the planet and generate consensus on critical issues leading to powerful decision rules based on the wealth of information generated by the technologies at our disposal.
