Food Production will need to increase by 60% (at least) over the next 35 years to provide food security for th 9 billion people expected to be living on the planet (UN, Global Goals). With new technological advancements in the agricultural revolution of precision farming, each farmer will be able to feed 265 people on the same acreage.
Precision agriculture aims to optimize field-level management with regard to:
• crop science: by matching farming practices more closely to crop needs (e.g. fertilizer inputs);
• environmental protection: by reducing environmental risks and footprint of farming (e.g. limiting leaching of nitrogen);
• economics: by boosting competitiveness through more efficient practices (e.g. improved management of fertilizer usage and other inputs).
Precision agriculture also provides farmers with a wealth of information to:
• build up a record of their farm
• improve decision-making
• foster greater traceability
• enhance marketing of farm products
• improve lease arrangements and relationship with landlords
• enhance the inherent quality of farm products (e.g. protein level in bread-flour wheat)
So the future of Smart Agricolture can be depicted as in the following picture:
So a sort of AOC (Agriculture Control Center) can be deliverd or engineerd that in large context can really be a control room in small context farmers are given a Smart Phone or a Tablet for crops control:
Using a smart combination of technology you can fulfil a precision agriculture project.
