With the world’s population predicted to reach 9.7 billion by 2050 and around 11 billion by 2100, precision agriculture is seen by some as representing a third agricultural revolution, able to significantly raise the productivity of food production.
Precision agriculture is a farming management concept based on observing, measuring and responding to inter and intra-field variability in crops. Variable rate technology including seeders, sprayers, etc. is used to optimally distribute resources with the aim of optimising returns on inputs while reducing the negative impacts of farming on the environment that come from over-application of chemicals or water.
This meeting comprises two virtual sessions. The first session, on Friday 13 November, will discuss examples of the use of precision methods in irrigation and water resources management. In the second session, on Friday 20 November, talks will be given on the technology used in precision agriculture, the economics of precision water management in the UK and in tropical countries, and technical and social innovations to improve precision agricultural water management in different agricultural systems for smallholders in developing countries.
This event is convened jointly with the Tropical Agriculture Association (TAA)
