Precision agriculture is certainly relative to each crop and production system, but there is little doubt the applied science introduced today will lay the groundwork for tomorrow’s best practices in crop growth and harvest. To help get a handle on the changing dynamics in each market, the editors at Meister Media Worldwide have compiled an exclusive State of U.S. Precision Agriculture Report to highlight trends and opportunities in specialty markets and row crops.
Some report highlights include in-depth analysis on:
- Technologies driving the evolution of ag retail services and products: robotics, ecommerce, and beyond visual line of sight approval.
- How the vegetable operations both big and small are making major investments in new auto weeders and smart sprayers, and breeders are developing machine-friendly varieties.
- Why western fruit and nut growers are moving machine technologies from the test plots to the commercial harvests: Only half of growers are using simple sensor technology, but smaller growers are increasingly seeing the ROI.
- How specialty crop growers are leapfrogging decision management technologies to high-end mechanization to mitigate labor shortages.
