Precision agriculture market trends detailed in new research report

The Global Precision Agriculture Market was worth USD 3.67 billion in 2016 and is estimated to be growing at a rate of 14.7%, to reach USD 7.29 billion by 2021.

Precision agriculture is one of the advanced farming techniques that involve use of technologies such as Global Positioning System, remote sensing and Geographic Information system to gather information from the fields and make better decisions in the use of resources.

Precision agriculture reduces majority of human efforts on field by automation. With the use of installed sensors in the field, measurement of temperature, soil humidity and nutritional level of soil can be measured and shared with the farmers.

This enables the farmer to get better yields with optimized use of resources and wastage. All this technology can be accessed by farmers through their smartphones or PCs.
