Precision Agriculture is an agricultural technology (agritech) method of deploying analytics and monitoring measures to predict yields, safeguard risk and ensure optimum health and productivity on farms.

Over the past few years this method of farming has resulted in improved crop productivity and yields. In addition, it has created a fast and accurate decision making process for farmers in their land management.

Precision agriculture comes in many forms including satellite and drone mapping, soil sampling, weather monitoring, agriculture machinery, greenhouse farming, risk assessment and sensor data.
