Project description

In an ever growing world/economy and an increasing number of population comes the need to deploy modern techniques and technological advances to improve traditional farming. The field of precision agriculture (PA) enables accurate operational practices by farmers to assess agricultural produce, leading to a cost and time efficient predictive management of crops by providing real-time crop data.  As a result of predictive management and health assessment in PA, significantly smaller quantities of herbicides can be applied or even avoided altogether.
