Precision farming is defined on the basis of technologies that enable efficient farm management. It can be distinguished from traditional agriculture by its level of management; wherein, instead of managing the whole field as a single unit, it can rather be managed by varied sub-units. It accentuates the need for sound agronomic practices. Conventionally, growers treat their fields as homogeneous, and repeat the same practices every year. Precision farming optimizes the farmland efficiency and agricultural practices already in use. The major drivers for this market are augmented yield & profitability, government assistance, energy & cost saving, and the growing agro industry. Moreover, the major players in this segment are expanding their business offerings. There is a lot of opportunity for existing players and new entrants to innovate and thereby maintain a high performance and reliability in the market.
The major opportunities in precision farming are Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) applications, and the emergence of broadband & mobile technologies. The UAV applications consist of drones that cover a large farmland in a short time. Currently, the U.S. is at the forefront, and spends a huge R&D on UAV applications, followed by Israel, Germany, and France. The other factor penetration by broadband and mobile technologies, allows the growers to gather information such as scouting records, soil tests, and such, on their handheld devices.
This report covers the global market on the basis of technology, components, application and geography. The technology section covers guidance systems such as GPS, GIS, remote sensing; and variable rate technology categories, along with their current and future adoption rates. The components section covers automation & control systems such as display, GPS receivers, and auto-steer; sensing & monitoring devices such as sensors, and yield monitors; and the farm management systems, which include software and services. The application section covers different verticals like yield monitoring, variable rate application, field mapping, soil monitoring, crop scouting, and others. The geographical analysis covers Americas, Europe, APAC, and ROW regions.
