Precision agriculture is site specific crop management focused on managing field variability. Precision agriculture uses technology such as GPS to determine the specific needs of different sites within the field. This leads to a more efficient use of inputs like herbicides, pesticides, irrigation, or fertilizer. This is more sustainable for both the farm and the environment, while also producing higher yields.
Using advanced technology to plant, fertilize and harvest crops is one of the fastest growing areas in agriculture today. It is driven by the natural evolution of technology and by the daunting task of feeding 7 billion people. Maatila is proud to be on the cutting edge of the newest technology. Our staff remains committed to helping clients make the best decisions about the next steps to take with their farm operation, and how best to use the data that the technology provides.
