Precision farming for fruits and vegetables is expected to become much more widespread in the twenty-first century, symbolizing a better balance between reliance on traditional knowledge, information management and intensive technologies. Five main areas or categories are important: the role of computers, global positioning systems (GPS), geographical information systems (GIS), remote sensing, Variable rate technology, computer system and DRIS and SSNM for precision farming in horticulture. This article discloses each of these in the context of Indian horticulture and confirms that precision farming has the potential to reduce over application of inputs, optimize financial performance and enhance horticultural production.

Abstract


Precision farming for fruits and vegetables is expected to become much more widespread in the twenty-first century, symbolizing a better balance between reliance on traditional knowledge, information management and intensive technologies. Five main areas or categories are important: the role of computers, global positioning systems (GPS), geographical information systems (GIS), remote sensing, Variable rate technology, computer system and DRIS and SSNM for precision farming in horticulture. This article discloses each of these in the context of Indian horticulture and confirms that precision farming has the potential to reduce over application of inputs, optimize financial performance and enhance horticultural production.
