Precision agriculture

Precision agriculture (PA), satellite farming or site specific crop management (SSCM) is a farming management concept based on observing, measuring and responding to inter and intra-field variability in crops. The goal of precision agriculture research is to define a decision support system (DSS) for whole farm management with the goal of optimizing returns on inputs while preserving resources. | Source: wikipedia.

There are a set of products in the ArcGIS platform you should know when you are doing precision agriculture:

Learn more about how ArcGIS allows you to collect, maintain, and analyze all your agriculture field data in one centralized system. It will help to integrate high-resolution imagery, field observations, and real-time data feeds to understand how to make the most of your limited resources | Learn more about ArcGIS in Agriculture .
